My update sequence showed some errors.
Actions executed:
opkg remove -force-depends frameworkd paroli
opkg update
opkg upgrade
opkg install frameworkd paroli
-> paroli did not install because of conflict with the file 
/usr/share/elementary/themes/default.edj with elementary-themes
opkg remove elementary-themes -recursive
opkg install paroli
opkg install paroli-autostart paroli-sounds
-> paroli did not want to start because of missing dependency
opkg install python-elementary
-> paroli starts, waiting for someone to call me on saterday night :)
