I received a "downloadmanager conflict error, so i did it with an 'apt-get install canola2' and that appeared to work just fine.  This was via ssh, but I answered the usual GUI-based questions on the device itself.

Yes, they start in default mode (non verbose).

Ha! Reason: you had installed bora packages on your 770.

Point is: hacker edition is a backport of bora packages to 770, they
use the same software stack, but 770 is a different hardware platform.
Since we compile bora packages with optimizations for arm11, then you
get this illegal instruction error.

1 - Just uninstall all the dependencies:
    apt-get --purge remove libevas0 libecore0 libeet0 libembryo0 mplayer
2 - Disable the following repositories:
    deb http://repository.maemo.org   bora free non-free
    deb http://repository.maemo.org/extras/   bora free non-free
3 - Enable the following repositories:
    deb http://repository.maemo.org   gregale free non-free
    deb http://repository.maemo.org/extras/   gregale free non-free
4 - Install canola2:
     apt-get update; apt-get install canola2 mplayer
5 - Undo steps 3 and 2 (disable gregale, enable bora)

Sorry for the inconvenience, but since you're using hacker edition you
might like some fun! :-)
