there are very few apps installed by default on om2009. you will need
to use opkg to install more, and keep everything up to date. best to
do this over ssh, form your desktop/laptop

have you got ssh running?

there are more at, which have been specifically developed for
the freerunner; there is a repository which you can add to opkg,
although it's having some problems at the moment

take a look at:

for more info on what you can add to your freerunner.

bear in mind, that om2009 doesn't have a lot of libraries that your
average distro has, so some of the stuff there only runs on shr, or
some of the other community distros
