What I need would be the knowledge where I can change
the entry of maps.ovi.com to something else.
You cannot change anything as the application is closed source ... but that's strange about not being able to open Ovi Maps
try to reinstall the following packages:
Code:
nokia-maps-core
nokia-maps-ui

How can I do that?
The following servers fail when trying to update (names
translated from German):
Nokia applications,
Nokia Systemsoftware update
Ovi

I guess servers are also offline.

syslog install with apt-get also does not work
"Couldn't find package syklogd"
Tried that on my 2nd N900: same error message.

Exchange works for me but in somewhat curious way. It only syncs automatically when it first enters the peak period at 6am, and then only when the network changes, for example from WiFi to 3G or vice versa. If I stay on WiFi all day then the first sync at 6am remains the only one. A manual sync works any time.

I had a case of Maps not starting too. The cause was a missing file .qf in MyDocs root. I overzealously deleted it thinking I would not need it.

All I can say is that I had to diagnose a network problem a few weeks ago and had both a 7" LineageOS tablet with a USB keyboard portfolio case but I chose my N900 to diagnose the problem and then telnet in to change settings because I have no idea how to do that without spening hours hunting down a bunch of oddball android apps. The N900 is a real if impure GNU-Linux computer in your pocket. The an Android is just a fast accessory with a nice browser and a few extra sensors, especially NFC for transit card loading and reading. But I don't go out without my N900 even if it require also carrying a battery pod. I am staring down the barrel of a future where I feel I might have to build a small slider keyboard tablet from a wifi/bt Pi-zero and 3D print a case so I have a real up to date GNU/Linux pocket computer also suitable for browsing to tether to a 3g or 4g dumb phone with bluetooth.

My 2 N900s are still my only phones. Last year I developed a Python GTK habit tracking app on one of them, which I've been using faithfully since to motivate me to do stuff each day/week.

I had set my laptop up using an inotify script to synch changes to my N900 and launch the app each time I wrote one of the source files from vim. That worked pretty well for testing purposes.

If I had time I would try to do more quick and dirty Python/GTK apps.

As for me I have purchased it again after 3 & half year and still in love with it even though I Android phone for work and N9 (with Broken Screen) but this monster is the best even when playing with its system. Still and shall be the best phone ever made.

Even though N9 is amazing but will be compared to N900

I am starting to carry my N900 around more these days, as my second phone ( i have a cheapo android phone ).
The more i use it the more i fall in love with it. I just hope the browser can handle modern webpages a bit better.

The browser is mostly what's stopping me. It'll take literally over a minute to load the mobile reddit site, if it loads at all ):

I would suggest reading up on what tweaking can be done....to improve performance and speed.

Mozilla or google will not update, maintain, or improve upon our browsers.
There is no profit in it for them any longer . Only loss.

"just hoping" things will get better will net you little improvement .

Disabling some things will speed things up for sure.
