^if it doesnt work for him it mite be worthwhile to post the contents of your sources.lst simply because your mileage may vary.

i dont think it worked for me on knoppix-live-cd. when i do sudo apt-get update, i run out of ram and it freezes my system.

It has already been established that the guy is trying to install a program which is only available as pre-compiled binary for x86 systems on a PPC system. That's why he hasn't been able to get it to work. No amount of messing with source lists or running 'sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree' is going to change that.

sorry you seemed to hit a brick wall.

yellow dog seems to be the flavor of choice for ps3; i came across this thread but it seems like more work than benefit and there's no guarentee of success.

ok pixelanny i have a question/request of you or whoever is reading this post Ok i have decided adobe is a bunch of pricks for not making a flash for me or anyone on a powerpc64

Ok here's a link to the info for what im looking at installing http://www.gnu.org/software/gnash/release-0.8.4.txt

and heres the available files for download of this version ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/gnash/0.8.4/

Even the 0.8.3 if it would work for flash
OK heres what I wanna know it says in the txt that it is supported by non x86 machines and powerpc is supported would anyone know which version to download and how would i go about doing this?

Thank you
