I just read the extra's feature isn't enabled and this could be one of the problems of why widgets and such aren't working properly.

Can someone post on how to enable it?

I've looked through the downloaded manual and for some ******ed reason Nokia failed to list it, just like they have with all the shortcuts for the phone.

I've just tried to wikify the shortcuts and gestures at http://wiki.maemo.org/N900_Shortcuts_and_Gestures based both on this thread and from various links.
Could someone please correct/merge the E-mail client and Conversations section, if they are the same?
Please feel free to add to it/correct it, in the spirit of wiki

If your N900 is bricked and battery is dead, you cant reflash OR CHARGE BATTERY: You must get another charged battery or external charger
That's horrendous!
So basically, that's like having a jailbroken iPhone with the new baseband, NEVER LET THE PHONE DRAINED
I don't want that..

So if a firmware update has failed and your battery is flat, you can't switch the phone on to reflash it? How is this news exactly? Do you expect the N900 to suddenly acquire some sort of energy transfer capability all by itself?

Both of the N-series handsets that I've owned (N93 and N95 8GB) plus the N97 (which I spent 10 minutes playing with) will not allow you to carry out a firmware update on battery power alone.

Besides which, the box that your N900 comes in includes an external charger, yes?

Apologies if I've misunderstood what you're trying to say, but isn't this just a one to file in the "No s**t, Sherlock" drawer?

I think you did misunderstand him.

If the root fs is filled and the phone basically won't boot because root is full and the battery has run down so you can't charge the battery.

So you have two problems, the root is full, you need to clear out so me of root so the OS will run, but you can't boot because maybe you had just bad luck and have a run down batt at the same time.

This is a problem, because having a process go rogue on you and fill up /var with a zillion messages happens. This fills up root and locks the file system. If this happens while you're snoozing and your batt runs down, ohh well...

If this can happen, I would put this in the "Real Bad" category.

That's how I interpreted "Bricked". It's been mentioned that if you fill root, your phone gets bricked.

is it safe to delete the debs in /var/cache/apt/archives? I could free up 20MB doing so.

Yes. The following command (from the root prompt) will also clean the archives:
Code:
apt-get clean
