Dunno if I got it all right but let me summarize what I experienced so far:
 - some hours ago the packet manager informed me about a Maemo 5 update.
 - when I try to install it, it recommends a backup and asks me to connect my
   phone with the PC suite (which is assumingly some Windows crap and I don't
   use a Linux phone to then need a Windows PC to upgrade it).
 - so I tried apt-get dist-upgrade which asks me to upgrade more than 1000
   packages which fails because of insufficient disk space.
 - so the only possibility for me to get the new version on my phone would be
   to reflash it and then pray that nothing goes wrong and I will have all the
   software installed like before.

Did I miss something? Isn't their a more comfortable way?
