[maemo-users] getting to a command line on the n800

you will need to add a few more repositories for starter (please find
below example). Then, as others said, you can install osso-xterm or
osso-xterm-advanced. Also there is a few method of gaining root access
(separate package I cannot remember name) or alternatively you can
install ssh server and run ssh root at localhost (def password: rootme).
Obviously if you decided to install ssh server you need to change root
and user password for security reason. Also you may install and
configure iptables.

good luck
