 Dear friends,
 I have just acquired the N800 and I love it.  I do have a number of
 questions about it which are not really maemo-related, but since
this list
 is one of well-informed N770/N800 users I thought I might at well
ask here.
 1) Xterm: I have installed xterm and even got myself a root password
 dropbear ssh).  However, this is no the Bash shell I am used to and
 commands do not have man or info pages.  Where can I find some
 on this shell's usage?  And one small thing: show do I scroll up
 pages (like to examine the contents of a 'netstat' command)?  BTW -
when I
 do netstat|less I get a warning that "this terminal is not fully
 functional".  Any ideas as to what that means?
 2) Batteries: Nokia's documentation says that once the batteries are
 the unit should be disconnected (same thing for my Nokia phone,
BTW).  So
 does that mean that overnight recharge is not an option?  Can/should
I run
 the unit without a battery inside when/if I can?  The battery life
of the
 unit (and of my Nokia phone) is, alas, rather short.  Has anyone
 purchasing a non-Nokia battery for cheaper and possibly with a
 battery life?
 3) I have installed mplayer.  Both the original media player and
 tend to make the unit freeze (with the sound track still running)
has anyone
 come up with a solution for this
 4) I have installed a lot of small files on the internal 2GB card
and ever
 since  see the unit doing "refreshing" very often and for a long
while.  Is
 there any way to make this better.
 5) on bootup I notice (with a CPU monitoring applet) that the CPU is
 at full blast.  I did a "top" in xterm to see who was taking so much
 power and I found out that the culprit is 'metalayer-c'.  Any idea
of who
 that is and why this happens?
 6) has anyone succeeded in installing a firewall on the N800?  I
could, of
 course, write a small script for iptables but its just not
convenient to
 access the root account with ssh each time then run the ipables
script.  Any
 better ideas?
 7) is there a car charger for the N800?
 Ok. that's about it.  Sorry for the non-maemo linked questions &
many thanks
 for any pointers,
