Mozilla-firefox Flash 7 support via Gnash. It's pretty slow but it gets the job done.

Terrific! Where can we get the plugin?

After you build the beast devel/boost the gnash plugin can easily be built from the ports tree. I'm going to rebuild gnash with some of the flag optimizations you suggested and see if I see any differences in performance. I'm not going to rebuild devel/boost since it took approximately four days compile.

you're kidding right? three days? it only took me 1 day to build boost on pdaXrom. what options did you use that took that much extra time? btw, what options did you use for firefox2? it took me 3 days to build it, but it core dumps sad.gif

So can some configure flags help speeding up make? rolleyes.gif

mathemajikian, I guess you are building things using the port tree, right?

Even though it takes such a long time, the fact is things work really well under OBSD. wink.gif

I build most things from /usr/ports. If it's not in the ports tree, then I build it from src and try to have it added. Yes, there are certain configure options which you can set which can speed up the build times; however, these options vary from port to port. Just ./configure --help to see a list of options which you can set.

The latest gnash-0.8.0 plug-in in the ports tree works with YouTube video and Myspace music players. It's pretty much useless for video on a Z. but could be an item of interest for those running OpenBSD on a Desktop.
