Where is the best place to get plug-ins for mozilla? Ex. Flash, Java, and all the cool graphic stuff. I would like to view flash movies and java applets. I did a goodle for this with no luck. Maybe someone has a link? Thanks!
Thanks dalek, The netscape link under "about Plug-ins" has links to some of the plug-ins. Id dont have one for Java however. I am searching the dreaded Sun homepage right now. Any ideas for the java plugin? Thanks again!
Thanks for the new link! And of course I have broadband! Thanks for all your help, as for your console problem, I have no clue If its a lost password I know how to change the root pass without loging on, Thats about it.
Well when I am in command line, init 3 or no windoze, then it works fine. But if I am in windoze or x and open a console then it won't work. I think it is a problem with x though. I just upgraded the system so there may be a bug.
It is really easy to upgrade. You type in emerge -u system. It then upgrades all the stuff you have installed. That is neat.
I'll update again in a few days. If it is a bug then they will likely have it fixed.
Have you ever tryed Apt-Get. Its a advanced packet manager that is awsome in my opinion. I was always messing up my updates and installs. Now I just apt-get it and its done. No bugs for my yet. Just a thought for you.
