Hi Mike,

I'm curious about the problem with wget. I tried to reproduce the problem by flashing the new firmware, adding repository.maemo.org to the application manager and activating red pill mode. After this, I was able to install wget without any problems. I then installed osso-xterm to try and test it, and it even seems to work.

The version of wget in the repository is wget-1.10.2-2osso1.

The details of wget say that it conflicts with wget-ssl, but that should only matter if you have wget-ssl installed.
