    Cannot find multiboot and nitdroid installer package in Nokia N900

    I gone after the NITDroid installation procedure inside my Nokia N900 but when I write
    Code:
    Code:
    apt-get install multiboot multiboot-kernel-maemo
    I get:
    Code:
    Reading package lists... complete
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading status information... complete
    E: Couldn't find package multiboot option
    I get the same kind of error if I attempt to download NITDroid installer. I have also attempt apt-get update but I obtain the similar error if I attempt to download multiboot or nitdroid. Extra devel is enabled but I canít observe multiboot and nitdroid installer in application manager too, all additional extra devel apps are obtainable.

    Before you start you require to add the extras devel repository: using this command:
    Code:
    apt-get -y install wget bzip2 rootsh nano kexec-tools
     'Download as well as install Multiboot 
    wget downloads.nitdroid /multiboot-extras_0.1_armel.deb 
    wget downloads.nitdroid/multiboot_0.2.5_armel.deb 
    dpkg -i multiboot*.deb
    Now you require to add a menu access for Nitdroid in multiboot
    Code:
    BOF
    cd /etc/multiboot.d 
    cat > NITdroid-2.6.28.NIT.05.item << EOF 
    ITEM_NAME="NITdroid on MMCp3 - 2.6.28.NIT.05"
    ITEM_KERNEL=2.6.28.NIT.05
    ITEM_MODULES=ext3 fatal 
    ITEM_DEVICE=\${EXT_CARD}p3
    ITEM_FSTYPE=ext2
    ITEM_FSOPTIONS=rw,delete not on time errors, errors=remount-ro, commit=3
    EOF

    For downloading and installing the nitdroid installer packages you will require to get the root access and type the following code:
    Code:
    BOF
    mkdir -p /and
    mount -o noatime,rw /dev/mmcblk1p2 /and
    cd /home/usr1/MyDocs
    wget downloads.nitdroid/nitdroidinstaller/Packages/NITDroid-N900-the-flying-world.tbz2
    rm -rf /and/*
    bzcat NITDroid-N900-the-flying-world.tbz2 | tar xvC /and
    EOF
    Code:
    Installing the nitdroid kernel 
    wget downloads.nitdroid/nitdroid-kernel-2.6.28-06_final1_armel.deb
    dpkg -i nitdroidinstaller keenel *deb
