Hi there,

Is anyone else having trouble downloading aMSN for the N900?
Mine downloads about 10% before it decides to not go any further, all the other repo's i've used have worked fine.

Hi,
I just tried it right now on a new N900 and it worked just fine, I don't know what could be wrong on your side, maybe a bad connection or something...
it doesn't fail or anything? it just stops ?
btw, make sure you have enough free space, just to be on the safe side.. and installing amsn requires at least 2MB free space from your rootfs (open the terminal and type 'df -h' to check).. hopefully soon we'll fix it so that it doesn't need space from rootfs anymore, and it will become available in maemo-extras repository.

Hi Kakaroto,

Rootfs has 65mb availble from 156mb. I keep getting "Download failed". Is there any way to get the .deb file directly? Or does aMSN have a large list of dependencies?

humm.. it's weird.. here are the links to the deb files directly.. install them with dpkg -i *.deb

I'm guessing it will be fine when it gets added to Maemo Extras (I have no problem downloading there).

I'll try the deb's in a few. Cheers Kakaroto

Update: Got it installed. Seems to work albeit a little slow, but that is to be expected with pre-release. Thanks for the help.
