[maemo-users] Newbie asks what is the key to repository access?

Thanks for taking the time to do an explanation using the example  
e2fsprogs package.  I kinda get it after digesting your points, but  
seem to still be missing something.

I have a 770 running OS 2006 3.2006.49-2.  So following your  
explanation, but instead changing from bora (N800) to gregale for the  
770, I  find the e2fsprogs deb file at: http://repository.maemo.org/ 

The repository entry in the Application Manger and consequently in / 
etc/apt/sources.list I believe then would be: http:// 
repository.maemo.org/ gregale free non-free

Then to find all the Packages available I look in: http:// 
repository.maemo.org/dists/gregale/free/binary-armel/ and http:// 
repository.maemo.org/dists/gregale/non-free/binary-armel/ and find  
the e2fsprogs package.  Plus I also figured-out the need for the  
armel architecture.

I still cannot get the e2fsprogs package to load through the  
Application Manager or apt-get install.

What am I missing?

As an option could I simply load from a file and still have all the  
dependencies taken care of?  Then what about the display features of  
the Application Manager for "installed" and "check updates"?

Thanks again for your help with this.
