Packages on Maemo have never been designed to be installed with apt.
Hildon application manager has built in features to limit any damage to the system which is why HAM is the only recommended way to install packages on Maemo.

CSSU-Devel is for devs to share built packages quickly and would be ideally be used on a testing device where apt can be used with caution.

Very true. Perhaps APT should be removed altogether then?

The point of APT that it is a package manager which handles dependencies automatically. When caution must be taken, we have dpkg to install packages manually.

APT exists in stable, testing and devel. It's one thing to expect developers to take caution but regular users expect APT to work as it is supposed to.

I agree it would be nice if apt worked like other distros but it has never been that way. I don't believe apt could be removed due to to HAM depending on it.

Interestingly apt in maemo is a modified version which hides packages with user/hidden category. From what I recall this was used by offscreen nokia apps in the non-free repo, way back in the day.

There is more to the package management in Maemo than dpkg and apt. HAM uses domains as an extra check on packages.

Take your example of apt in extras, using domains your apt package would actually be the latest version in the root filesystem repository (SSU) and should not be replaced by any "rogue" version uploaded to extras-devel or any other random repo with a greater package version.
Unless you installed this other version manually with apt breaking this "feature".

Really the "disclaimer" should be on rootsh or having root control of your system with R&D mode.
Do you want to be stopped from having root access to your device? Looking at the bigger picture removing that from extras would simply fix the issue if you think about it.

Do not use libbmeipc0 from CSSU-devel, it makes battery charging impossible.

i've got one maybe silly question. Are the packages nowdays compiled with thumb or not. Because i kinda don't want to upgrade some minor versions because they are misssing thumb.
example
hildon-application-manager (2.2.73-2+thumb0 => 2.2.75-2)

I haven't seen thumb builds for a while, so I think not.

HA

So ... lets say I read it, still didn't pay enough attention and the upgrade slipped trough today.
What can I do to revert so my battery charges again?

apt-cache policy only shows ibbmeipc0_1.0-3.

ibbmeipc0 should not be in cssu-devel nor in any cssu flavor.

It was installed from here:
http://maemo.merlin1991.at/cssu/comm...ibb/libbmeipc/

So quick facts:
I did an "apt-get upgrade" glanced over the packages, everything seemed ok. Then I confirmed. Seconds later my battery shows "Not present or not calibrated" and the charging indicator LED does not light up when I connect the cable.

But maybe it does charge because bnf shows 100% charge and "Wall charger: present"
Yes, it seems its charging anyway.
But it dosn't seem to stop charging at 100%, also I would enjoy seeing my battery level without using the console.
