Is there a web browser with flash support on embedded linux?


I'm looking for a web browser with flash support on embedded linux.It looks like that both the flash player such as gnash or swfdec and the web browser like firefox or mozilla need code porting. That is a hard work.

Any suggestion would be appreciated!

What device are you using that has embedded Linux and what distribution of Linux is it?

What kind of architecture are you using and which distro? Provided you know answers to these two questions, finding it would be simpler for you.

I believe the ARM port of debian has fully functional browsing and semi-functional gnash. I haven't tried it myself, though.

Take a look to http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages a lot of this packages are arm-compiled, you have to download the .deb, uncompress it, uncompress it's contents till you get both the list of the files (with their destination folders) and the files you need.

Take only those that you need, and place them where it's suggested unless you know you can replace them.

flash support for embedded linux

If you look up PIC instruction set on youtube you will find a series of lectures about embedded hardware. Also piklab is a free ide for pic microcontroler applications. You can find it under programming if you go to add/remove under applications. Wish I could be more helpful but I would probably set you up for failure (inadvertently) as risc is still very new to me.
