Paul, I think I did not describe accurately enough, what I want to do and what boundary condidtions are there. Am Sonntag, 8.

Nokia does not ship any version of Navit (they ship the proprietary OVI maps). Freetype belongs to the core system which is shipped by Nokia, which I do not want to change, since I fear that it breaks other stuff. But applying the patch in question specifically, I might consider it as an option... > I doubt we would introduce a freetype2.3.11 nor statically link navit > to freetype. Yes, I understand, Debian would not introduce such a hack (although e.g. libdb comes in a number of versions, libdb4.7, libdb4.8, libdb5.0,...). But I am more looking for a tactical short term solution on which I can iterate and improve (e.g. why should I replace the Nokia freetype, when I do not yet know, that this would fix the problem....). > PS: You may be interested in joining this effort to port Debian to the > Nokia N900: > > http://wiki.debian.org/pkg-n900 Cool, I was not aware of this effort. If GPS and modem support will be added, the have a usable base system, I am really impressed of this effort :-) The biggest challenge are probably the missing hardware drivers (which prohibit e.g. to update the maemo distribution with new kernels).
