If you have problems, then remove Emdebian and leave only official one. If you still have problems, then you know that reason is somewhere else :P
Of course you don't have to reinstall whole system to change those things, everything should be doable from config files and clever use of apt-get/aptitude.
PS. FSO repo shouldn't be necessary. It just has few nice utilities we created while working on freesmartphone.org within Openmoko community, like mdbus, matchbox themes etc., but the most useful ones probably already migrated to main repos.
hi mate. not to be a pain in the ass. but an apt stanza example would go a long way <-- SCREAMING NOOB!!!
Just imagine that I have no idea what I am doing. Then you just about have it.
" clever use of apt-get/aptitude." = just about being able to understand the docs "so far"...
