which repository or repositories should i have enabled to get 
illume-config-illume?  i'm running 20080827-asu-stable-rootfs with not too 
much in the way of modification (yet; i only got the phone on 26/8).  i'm 
sorry if i've jumped in in the middle of the discussion and have missed an 
important pre-requisite.

that works, yup, thanks.  didn't see a wrench, though, which i was vaguely 
expecting; have i misunderstood other postings?

ummm, it didn't - i just lost the qwerty button, and still the same old 
keyboard popped up when i entered (eg) terminal.

getting rid of the qtopia keyboard in favour of a full, non-predictive 
qwerty keyboard is one of my fondest aims at the moment, so i'd appreciate 
any help you can give, and am happy to test stuff!
