 Instructions for Maemo 5 beta (fremantle)
To install PyMaemo on Maemo 5 SDK, follow the same instructions as below (replacing occurrences of "diablo" with "fremantle"), but replace the "extras" repository with the "extras-devel" one:
deb http://repository.maemo.org/extras-devel/ fremantle free non-free
Also note that the runtime metapackage is now called "python-runtime" (without the Python version), therefore to install the bindings, do:
[sbox-FREMANTLE_X86: ~] > apt-get install python-runtime
 Instructions for Maemo 4.1 (Diablo)
The first thing is to add the Maemo extras repository (where Python is located) to your list of package sources. To do that you will have to edit the file
/etc/apt/sources.list inside Scratchbox, for both targets (X86 and ARMEL), which should look similar to this:
deb http://repository.maemo.org/ diablo free non-free deb-src http://repository.maemo.org/ diablo free deb file:/home/[username]/maemo-sdk-nokia-binaries_4.1.2 diablo explicit
Add the following line to it:
deb http://repository.maemo.org/extras/ diablo free non-free
Now resynchronize your package index files with the following command:
[sbox-SDK_X86: ~] > apt-get update
After that you are ready to install python2.5 plus bindings doing this:
[sbox-SDK_X86: ~] > apt-get install python2.5-runtime
To see all Python-related packages issue this command
[sbox-SDK_X86: ~] > apt-get cache search python*
Note that you'll see also Scratchbox's own python (version 2.3) which you must not use for your Maemo development. So, run your scripts explicitly calling
python2.5 instead of just
Also, some programs require some extra configuration done by the
run-standalone.sh script. Call Python with it as follows:
run-standalone.sh python2.5 <yourscript.py>
