You can leave swfdec, as root do
Code:
update-alternatives --config flash-mozilla.so

Easy way to install Multimedia codecs, flash, java, mplayer - LinuxQuestions.org - http://www.linuxquestions.org/blog/c...-mplayer-2092/

exoodles is a script that adds the debian-multimedia.org repo and contrib non-free, then lets you choose what apps to install. It uses aptitude or apt-get depending on which one you normally use.

Nothing you can't do with aptitude/apt-get or synaptic, just a bit easier and all in one place.

tmick, when I first deleted swfdec from my system way back when I was using Lenny and now in Sqeeze, I too received the notice some gnome files and even the Gnome DE would be deleted. Scared the hell out of me. Accept it. I've done it many, many times without any serious effect. I have not lost my Gnome desktop. Nor any thing else. Not a problem. Don't know why one gets this message. But you will still have your full blown Gnome desktop.

hmm I run
Code:
 update-alternatives --config flash-mozilla.so
and got
Code:
update-alternatives: error: no alternatives for flash-mozilla.so.
So did flashplugin -nonfree not get installed or did it become the default instead of swfdec?

Okay as per your blog I ran:
Code:
cd /usr/local/bin; wget -Nc ex.505.ru; chmod +x exoodles; exoodles
and got

chmod: cannot access `exoodles': No such file or directory

If I 'ls' I get an index.html file and if I use gedit or vi on that file it shows no script at all, where did I goof?

Okay, after all I can always get the squeeze repo list from here if I have to re-install

Question about the difference between Squeeze and Sid

Here is the reason for this question. I made it through the transition from Lenny to Squeeze (with lots of help) . And I now have Gnome 2.28 for my Desktop with Kernel
Code:
uname -ra
Linux debian-tmick 2.6.30-2-686 #1 SMP Fri Dec 4 00:53:20 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux
If I run uname on Fedora 11 I get
Code:
 Linux <hostname> 2.6.30.9-102 fc11 i586 #1 smp <date info> i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
So is the difference between Sid and Squeeze mostly kernel differences? I know GNOME isn't going to be any newer for a while.

While I'm thinking of it, I have the i586 Kernel because I use Virtualization, if I install that on my Debian box will it knock me back to i586 instead of i686 that I am on now? I ask this because in the F12 release notes it states they won't be using the 586 kernel anymore due to too many issues and I have noticed some issues with 586 since it was installed as part of the Virtualzation package.

Yes, in Sid repos there is the 2.6.32 kernel. Many other packages in Sid are newer versions than in Squeeze.

The main difference is about 10 days. Ie those of us using sid, get the packges first, find and report bugs, and then once they have been stable for 10 days, they get passed on to testing.
