Ubuntu stuff: gnash 0.8.2 for gutsy, ndisgtk, aufs

A backport of gnash 0.8.2 is available in my PPA at

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/juliank/ubuntu gutsy main

I wanted to try it, but I had no time to compile it, so I uploaded it to the PPA. The next day, I had a compiled backport.

I don’t use it actively because it does not support some sites I visit.

Another news is the recent addition of ndisgtk to the ship and ship-live seeds, which means it will be available on the disk. http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-core-dev/ubuntu-seeds/ubuntu.hardy/revision/1223.

BTW, recent Ubuntu Hardy images (including Alpha 6) have support for using aufs instead of unionfs, simply add union=aufs to the kernel options. It may help if you have problems with unionfs and should be faster and more stable.

  1. Hi,

    great to see someone doing a backport.
    All I miss is a PPC version, which I guess you haven’t done by lacking the hardware, right?
    I wouldn’t mind to provide such .deb package based on your source, diff and dsc files but I need to know how to do so.
