View Full Version : Java and Flash on FC4 PPC?

Hey there, just noticed Firefox doesn't have Java plugins or MAcromedia Flash plugin.... where WOULD you get a PPC version of this for linux? Sorta makes Linux a bit useless for the internet without those two dont you think? :rolleyes:

There are no official packages for Sun Java and Macromedia Flash for Linux PPC. However, from having used Debian PPC in the past there are some Java implementations done by third parties that work with varying degrees of success. If you google around there are some workarounds for getting flash to work as well, but from what I remember it's kind of a pain in the butt, and there are a couple of open source flash players (swfdec, I believe). This issue was a source of frustration for me (and I'm sure many others) on my old yosemite and ultimately led me to building a cheap PC to run Linux on just to avoid it. You might try poking around PPC Nerds (http://www.ppcnerds.org/) or Penguin PPC (http://www.penguinppc.org/) for some answers. Good luck!
