As said on nokian900applications, Maemo, the operating system of Nokia N900, has 3 repositories of applications. Repositories are Extras, Extras-Devel, and Extras-Testing and in each are grouped the applications according to their compatibility. In these repositories there are a lot of nice applications (openSSH, Nmap, Evince, Bash), but first we have to enable them. I would recommend not to use the Extra-Devel, but if you necessarily want to you could 👿

To enable, for instance, the Extra repository just click the “Extra” link above and be sure the “Disabled” checkbox is off. For a nice little demo watch this movie:
