    gnash compiles and runs pretty well on 64 bit. be it AMD64 or SPARC64. :P

    That’s no so bad, you can turn still it off. But the streets around here are already fully decorated for almost a week, when waking up last monday at first I thought I had missed a whole month or so.

    > 64-bit Flash Support (edit: or lack thereof)

    What does not work? I use the native proprietary 64bit Flash plugin (at work I use gnash) in Flock (64bit native version from fbuild) and Konqueror and even with my quite strange pulseaudio setup it works fine.

    mmh? I do have a 64bit flash plugin…

    My flash wont respond to the mouse, only the keyboard.

  • Cassiano Leal

    Flash’s been available for 64-bit Linux for sometime now.

    I Hope this will solve the problem.

    Description: A wrapper to run Netscape plugins on other architectures
    nspluginwrapper is an Open Source compatibility plugin for Netscape 4
    (NPAPI) plugins. That is, it enables you to use plugins on platforms
    they were not built for.
    This package is built to run i386 plugins, since there are no known
    binary-only plugins built for any other architecture.

    As long as the Debian Desktop Project exists, Ubuntu should not.

  • Mattj

    @ Paul. Stop spamming, you put exactly the same comment on the blog post in question.

  • Kurt von Finck

    As long as the Debian Desktop Project exists, Ubuntu should not.

    Wow, What other things in the world “should not exist” in your opinion?

    “As long as Judaism exists, Christians and Muslims should not.”

    Personally, I know I have enough personal flaws and biases that I am a poor judge of what has the right to exist and what does not. But that’s me …

    I love how trolls always attempt to hijack any discussion with rediculous non-sequiters.

  • RaphaĆ«l Pinson

    That’s a very open-minded view on free software, Paul, congratulations :-)

    I can’t find your page by the way. Am I missing something?

  • Vadim P.

    Adobe’s 64bit Flash is working for me…

    Except the fact that they haven’t updated it for GTk 2.18. But hey, open-source stuff like Java hasn’t either apparently (and I hear mono. not confirmed.)

  • Simon C

    I usually follow the DD blogs through the Planet Debian without comment any post, but for those ones (about all the @ubuntu stuff), I make an exception. I think that’s kind of shame (is this sentence a correct one ?) that your post doesn’t mentions all the blog posts I’ve seen on the Planet Debian, who disagreed whith the one you quoted. Indeed, the opinion of the qhoted blogger involves just himself, but it is the only overview given by your post on the Planet Ubuntu.

    That would be nice if you allowed the P.U. readers to get an easy access to the DD’s reaction, wouldn’t it ?

    This one deserves a particular intention ;-) :

  • ftx

    Go to the anger management class.

    1) Agree
    2) Agree
    3) LOL! Is that guy actually serious?
