7 I upgraded to openrc 10 days ago and didn't notice anything untoward, but
8 after a few days Firefox 3.6.17 started reporting that it couldn't find
9 Flash. (I only use Flash for the BBC I-Player service.) I tried Opera,
10 Chrome and Seamonkey, and they either said the same or just sat and looked
11 at me when asked to stream audio.
13 I tried re-merging adobe-flash and nspluginwrapper a couple of times and now
14 the audio streaming runs, but I'm suffering random lockups when cycling
15 desktops, and I think I remember reading that Flash does sometimes cause
16 lockups. I'm thinking of removing everything flash and substituting gnash or
17 something, because I do like to listen to the radio.
19 This is an amd64 box. I have only:
21 $ cat /etc/portage/package.keywords
22 ~app-office/libreoffice-3.3.1
