For many things  you would like to do on the Nokia N900 (OpenSSH, Debian) it is necessary to have root access. In order to get root access we have to install the rootsh package from the extra repository (see here how to enable “extra” repositories). Once installed we can type sudo gainroot an we’ll be root!
