Flashplayer 10.1 r85

October 26, 2010 — BarryK
Wary 092 has Adobe Flash player version 10.0.42. I have now upgraded to 10.1.85.

There was some feedback on the forum that this is a good thing to do, although I can't remember the reasons. It is of course a bit bigger.

I just tested, it plays YouTube videos full-screen -- if I recall rightly, that was an issue with older players.

Barry, I just wrote some experimental Perl code that converts a Debian/Ubuntu package list into a Puppy one, I still need to produce two Packages-ubuntu-main-official and md5 them to see if they produce the same output. It requires the devx installed. It's very quick, could be useful with Lupu or Debian-based wooflets. Just a thought ... you could add some [ "`which debtoppm`" != "" ] check that uses this script for Debian and Ubuntu instead of the slow Bash-based processing code if it exists.

"Iguleder, Ah yes, that is an area that needs improvement!

"I made an auto-install script for the latest flash9 (needs patriot patched jwm for full screen) [code] #!/bin/sh cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins && wget -O - |tar -xz VER=`strings | grep -e "^Shockwave Flash [.\d+]*" | sed -e "s/Shockwave Flash //g"` && sed -i "s/$VER/10.1 r99/g"[/code] The first line is the actual flash9 installer. The second line makes it work on pages requiring flash10.1 It saves about 4-8Mb (depending on browser choice) and everything still works AFAICT for flash10.1 instead use [code]cd /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins && wget -O - |tar -xz[/code]

"Barry, I also noticed that your category guessing code is bad. At the moment I'm trying to get a list of all categories in the Ubuntu repos, then I'll add a "case" statement to my script, got about half of this thing ready. It should make the PPM package list way longer :)

"Should work well, here it is: This one has some section handling, but it's limited and there's nothing we can do about this. For example, Amarok isn't listed as an audio player with "audio" as its section. It's very very fast, makes the console freeze even on a powerful Core 2 Duo :)

"technosaurus, Yes, downloading it when we get online would be good, if we want a smaller iso.
