    Phoronix: Lightspark Flash Goes To Linux PowerPC

    It was just a few days ago that Lightspark 0.4.5 was released with a new graphics engine, but now there's already Lightspark What does this release bring? Experimental PowerPC support. Adobe only provides official Flash/SWF support for Linux on x86 and x86_64 platforms, but the open-source Lightspark now supports the PowerPC architecture too...

    Does that mean ppc32 and ppc64 architectures? I remember having great difficulty getting a flash player working on my PS3 when I was running a ppc64 Gentoo System on it

      right now it mean Any PPC architecture that can compile the code as he doesn't have any Altivec SIMD code as yet.

        I'm using a desktop pc. Will lightspark do more for me than adobe's non-free flash plugin? I mean, I am a huge fan of, but as you probably know it's a hell of a pain in fullscreen.
        So if I install lightspark, will that solve the problem? Cuz now I have to use the compiz zoom effects (super + mouse scroller).
