[quote=Fred] As Flash 10 has a critical, unfixed bug, Gnash 0.8.8 can replace it in Linux for YouTube and Googlevideo, while most other Flash sites and news streaming in Flash do not work yet, because their providers only accept Adobe Flash for the moment. Gnash 0.8.8 and "browser-gnash-plugin" for Mozilla are already in the Debian sid repository. For Ubuntu Lucid it is not yet available, but the Debian sid main repository could be added. The file libgnutls.so.13 would have to be added manually from the Hardy repository, because it is not in Lucid anymore. A downloaded deb for it could be extracted with dpkg-deb --extract file.deb /PathtoTemporaryDir and the extracted lib file renamed to simple libgnutls.so.13 before copying it to /usr/lib/ . The file "libgnashplugin.so" would have to be copied from /usr/lib/gnash to $HOME/.mozilla/plugins/ and "libflashplayer.so" moved temporarily to another place, because else Adobe Flash would always be preferred by the browser. Check if the user rights for $HOME are still the correct ones, if not, correct that. The start of the first flash movie could take a while, but then it should work correctly. I have not yet tried this with other distros, but basically it should be possible too for them in a similar way, to test Gnash, which can be an alternative for Linux browsers from now on, as soon as all flash providers will accept that. You should only try to test it, if you are experienced and you know what you're doing, in order not to ruin your system, or else test it with a live cd. Fred[/quote]
