    Phoronix: Adobe Updates Flash Player 10 RC

    A month ago Adobe had pushed out its Flash Player 10 Release Candidate for Linux and their other supported platforms. Flash Player 10 introduces new 3D features, updated APIs, V4L2 web-camera support, and a variety of other improvements...

      Doesn't work here (even Adobe's test page). Went back to previous 07xxxx release.

        This release is a clear regression, when you do ldd on it you see this:

        ./libflashplayer.so: /lib/tls/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by ./libflashplayer.so)
        libnss3.so => not found
        libsmime3.so => not found
        libssl3.so => not found
        libplds4.so => not found
        libplc4.so => not found
        libnspr4.so => not found

        That means it is too new for Debian etch.

          you should use gnash on debian to be more coherent to debians policy. some times I don't understand debian users. sorry.

                Ouch. I'd say that was a problem for Adobe then...

                  Quick question, what about Flash content overlapping navigation menu on a lot of sites? Has that been fixed within Flash 10?

                  Comment


                  • #10
                    Yes, that transparent menu/background things are fixed - all overlapping stuff works (example see the menus in adobe's own website ). In fact I remember I was happy to see it fixed in the version released in May itself .

                    Although a thing to note - sometimes sites with such overlapping menus crash, like nvidia.com (although I don't know its because of overlapping menus or heavy flash'ing in general).

                    On a related note, the website crashing thing is/was very frequent with firefox 3.0.X. Fortunately, I have been content with firefox 3.1 trunk (minefield).

                    Also here is something - on my year old Gentoo (glibc 2.5, gcc 4.1.2, ..), minefield with this latest flash beta works perfectly. But on Ubuntu 8.04.1, firefox is buggy as expected (nvidia.com crashes for example), but minefield also has some glitches - example playing youtube videos fullscreen hangs the browser.

                    The two nagging issues for me that have been fixed with this rc - some flash sites are faster and more perfect (like yahoo.com, nvidia.com, bbc.com), playing youtube videos in high quality no longer says " video no longer available.

                      Firefox 3.0 introduced a bug, that is affecting flash 10.
                      The bug is fixed for 3.0.2 (which is not quite out yet)

                      So then, it will work fine.

                        What about making the Flash for Linux...

                        64bit support?
                        ARM support at same time as in the other platforms?
                        PowerPC support?

                        No? Ok, bye bye Adobe.

                            AFAIK, ARM and MIPS versions of an "embedded" flash variant
                            exist, you have to contact Adobe to get them.

                              That's the problem, they aren't still so open...

                              And they are different version, not equal. THey are segmenting flash by markets, making things worser in my opinion. It's not good to have a propietary web standard like Flash to be widely used, but it's worser that they segment their own product instead being the same on different platforms.
