maemo mapper was uploaded to the "mistral-extras" repository which
contain apps that are known work with OS 2006 only.
Well, I am not quite correct, because mapper was tested on OS2007 as
well (manual installation). Someone changed the Application Catalog
entry to reflect this fact. Well, the install file is still old, and
does not have an entry which would allow the installation on N800.
I need to fix it manually and it is not a big deal. The only problem
comes next time, when a new release will be announced by John
(author/maintainer of mapper). The install file will be regenerated
and we are back at square 1.

We are thinking about a solution that would automagically make OS 2006
and OS 2007 compatible installation files, if an application is known
to work on both.
