From what I have read here (in particular the extra libraries and compilers required) it seems this is not a substitute for Flash in Puppy?

I hope I am wrong Shocked

lets see... there is lightspark, swfdec and gnash

to compare them equally, it may be best to use mozplugger and compile the extra libs in statically (similar to how Barry compiled gparted with static gtkmm libs) - even with the dependencies, I doubt that the size would even come close to flashplugin's 10+ MB since the majority of the rest of the libs are already used by puppy

It would be interesting to see how these work now. There are a lot of dependencies required for these due to the large number of formats played, and some are supported in GNASH, while others are supported by LIGHTFLASH. It would require both to replace FLASH entirely, but I believe the result will still be more compact than the adobe product.

One MUST use a later version of lightflash than 4.1, I believe, to have compatability with gnash. I haven't tried this, but as of the past hour I'm on my way, having removed flash from my pup system. I'm tired of the lockups and shutdowns of X caused by using an older (10.x) version of FLASH.

Flash was a bad idea in search of resources to waste. Same for all those extraneous formats that some bloke thought we all "needed".

<sigh> <rant-mode OFF>

DO excuse my venting....I digress....and I'll let you know if I have success.

Varmint -- I'd be extremely interested in how "light" Lightflash is, particularly in terms of CPU usage. I've an old P2 system that I'd love to see useful as a Puppy Promo/Demo setup -- as in "You can even watch YouTube junk with this old heap, thanks to the Power of Puppy Linux!" If Puppy can "rehab" a ~15 year old laptop to the point where it can do basic computing tasks (email, light web browsing + YouTube, and word processing -- you know, what Most Of The General Public ask of their computer) competently, I think we've got a real winner.

System in question has a 300MHz Pentium 2 and 128meg RAM with an IIRC 384meg swap partition. I'd max out the RAM (to a whopping huge 256meg, lol) but it takes EDO which is insanely expensive on fleaBay -- when it's even available... thanks Dell Rolling Eyes (it's a Dell Latitude CPi D300XT that I've nicknamed The Infernal Dell, with reasons aplenty!)
