10 They're streaming services like Youtube, and they're both completely
11 Flash-dependant.

18 The decision has been made for me, or let's say I made it back in May
19 when I installed pure-64-bit. I attempted "emerge -pv nspluginwrapper",
20 and found that nspluginwrapper requires multi-lib support on amd64
21 installs... oops. So gnash it is. After my abortive nsplugin emerge, I
22 did some research. It seems that gnash doesn't do sound by itself. It
23 requires the "gstreamer" flag for audio functionality. That flag pulls
24 in "gstreamer and friends". I run with custom flags in make.conf. Any
25 comments on my choice of flags? Do I need additional ebuilds loaded as
26 well? Is it supposed to pull in 2 versions of media-libs/gstreamer?
28 Calculating dependencies... done!
