Please help test our pre-release build of 8.2.1

2009-01-02 Thread Brian Pepple
Hi All,

A pre-release build of 8.2.1 is now available for testing. It has passed
an initial smoke test and now needs broader testing.

The build download and problem reporting instructions are here:
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Friends_in_testing#Current_status

The very early draft release notes are here:
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Release_Notes/8.2.1

Please send a note to the list if you try this build even if you don't 
find anything interesting. We want to measure our test capacity.

Thanks,
/B

Re: Why not use swfdec-mozilla? (was Re: Installing Flash on the OLPC)

 swfdec{,-mozilla} use gstreamer, are LGPLed, and support most of the

 the preferred flash player on Ubuntu.

Quick clarification.  We discussed making swfdec installed by default
during the development of Fedora 9, but decided against doing so since
we felt it wasn't quite ready for that.

 Were there some specific problems with using swfdec? Or was it not
 under consideration due to some factors?

I'm not sure if it was considered, but as the maintainer of swfdec in
Fedora I can state that swfdec is very cpu-intensive, and I have my
doubts whether the performance on the XO would be comparable to gnash's,
though it might be worth investigating.

Later,
