MOD EDIT 22-04-2013: Since the migration is completed, the temporary repos are not needed. It should be fine using the default repos.

There have been at least 4 threads with people complaining about how to set things up till repo.maemo.org comes back up.

First things first, repo.maemo.org is down not because Council wants it that way but because there is some DNS issues causing akamai to leech the same content from the new infra; pending these issues being solved with Nokia's cooperation, skeiron.org is available for public usage.

- http://skeiron.org/repo/repository.maemo.org

Skeiron is using data from 26/12/12

Using the default App Manager on the N900 (HAM), firstly, disable the repos that are down.

Pictures for those who need more details:

1) Open App Manager and click on the top bar



2) After clicking on "Application Catalogues", scroll down to those catalogues that have a red sign with exclamation mark as shown



3) Now for every of these catalogues, open them and click on "Disabled" to disable them and click "Save"



Now old repos have been disabled; when they come back up you can simply go back and untick the "Disabled" option for every one of them.


Now next stage is to add new catalogues or repos by clicking on the "New" button in the "Application Catalogues" menu as in "2)" above. Clicking on "New" you would get:



This is the place where you input the temporary mirror details.


For Community Repo:



For Community-Testing Repo:



For Extras Repo:




For Extras-Devel Repo:



For Extras-Testing Repo: - (not recommended)



So that's all you need to do and run an update. In the worst-case scenario that you need a package and can't do the above the repos can be accessed via your browser and the package can be manually downloaded.


If the above isn't able to solve your queries; visit #maemo on freenode or post on this thread instead of sending mails to webmaster

For Community Repo:

For first two I get "Hash Sum mismatch". Skeiron's repo doesn't report error, but it's without latest stable (v6) update.

kolos,

Indeed this is an issue from repo.maemo.org; nothing that we can do till it comes back up... Its recommended to stay with skeiron as although its not the latest; its not the oldest and it has no hash sum mismatch issue...

CSSU-Stable = Community in OP

CSSU-Testing = Community-Testing in OP

CSSU-Thumb was never on repo.maemo.org so no worries...

Do the changes in HAM not Faster Application Manager... fapman will surely read the changes made in HAM iirc...

Are you telling me that all this time I have been updating the repo lists in both app managers unnecessarily?

[Half an hour later...]

Err, no. FAM does not pick up the changes made in HAM. I had to update both.

Oh, and as kolos said, the merlin mirror gives me hash mishmash but the recommended skeiron mirror is not a cure: it gives me "sub-process bzip2 returned an error code (2)". What am I doing wrong?
