I'm trying to get to into www.bonnaroo.com ...and very annoyingly they do no not have a
a non-flash site. I could rant and rave all day about flash sites that dont have a text or html alternative...but it wont do me any good. :? I need Flash > 6.0 to view the site.
Apparently the plugin for linux offered on macromedia's site is a binary distrobution
built for x86 hardware (Binary distrobutions Suck!!! :evil: )...of course that wont work
here on my ibook. All the portage ebuilds are masked...probably for the same reason...though I
cant tell
Does any one have any idea if I can install flash or am I out of luck?
Maybe there is a source code distrobution?

Many Thanks Suicidal...I can at least keep an eye on development.
I'd rather have an open source package anyway :)
I guess for now I'll just have to visit that website at my desktop.

How limited is gentoo on the ppc I have a g4 collecting dust at work that I would like to try a few things on. Mainly apache, snort, prelude and probably rsyncd since it would be in the same room as my T1 lines.

It's really not that limited. I'm very happy that Gentoo is running on my G3 iBook2. Hell I haven't used OS X in months. :D

Thanks for the info, I have gentoo ppc up and running on a G4 right now.

I see alot of packages that arent marked for ppc use but seem to compile fine on it, after I add ppc to the keywords.

So far I have got snort, prelude and nessus to install, whether they actually run reliably is another story. I am in the process of configuring all of them for some good healthy network monitoring, I'll update with the results.
