Anyone could help me? I have a problem installing and removing an application on my n900.
I tried to install and uninstall an application thru application manager, fapman, clean900, and thru xterm (dpkg and apt-get) but no luck.
It started to happen when i uninstall a tribal-theme, after uninstallion of massive applications and themes that is not usable for me.
I think there is something wrong with the "dpkg".
Here's in my xterm.

BusyBox v1.10.2 (Debian 3:1.10.2.legal-1osso30+0m5) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

What's the permissions on /usr/bin/dpkg? (the output from "ls -l /usr/bin/dpkg" will do)

I see this has already been solved. The issue, for anyone else coming across this thread, was the permissions on /usr/bin/dpkg were incorrect (though there's no info on how this happened). The fix was to run (as root):
Code:

chmod 755 /usr/bin/dpkg
