Angry Games on Linux


Hello,

This is my first post here so help me out
I have recently installed Mandrivia One on a somewhat old computer (old, but runs Windows XP). Everything works great except for the speed of games (like flash games)
The sound is delayed by a second, it's choppy, and it has a pretty low framerate

I was wondering if there are any updates and whatnot I could get to improve this.

Thx

Well, you might have graphics problems, but most likely it's just the Linux flash. I don't get it but, adobe will not make a good flash plug-in for Linux.

Try installing flash 9 plugin here.
Copy flash-player-plugin-9.0.21.55/libflashplayer.so to your /usr/lib/mozilla/plugin or similar Mandrivia plugin.

I tried the flash 9 plug-in a couple of months ago. Flash 7 always had a sync problem for me; 9 seemed to fix the sync problems but, it always locked up on me. Do you know of any quick fixes for flash 9 locking up? Or should I what patiently for a better flash plug-in?

Or May be your browser has some critical flaws (hey even firefox has memoryleasks problem) so try installing Flashplayer , and Updating your webbrowser that you use (in linux) -I am assuming that you run flash based games in linux in a browser and it has speed problems , low frameratre and choppy sound.
Alternatively you might also verify if you have swap partition (google is your best friend if you dont know about SWAP) in a nutshell its a dedicated partition to do the job what pagefile does in Windows.
And we are here to help , even if its your 1000th post

The flash plugin works for the most part.
The games play, but there is no sound.
When I first installed Mandrivia, I had to manually configure the right sound card.
I can play mp3 songs on Amarok and i can hear it, so it must be something within firefox or the plugin

( I have firefox 1.5.0.7, Need to update)

I got the stand alone player, but it still wont work
I cant get any sound from any form of flash

Any more suggestions?

Nevermind
Flash 9 won't make a sound
i got the stable version, it makes sound, but it is kinda slow

Should I try to find out what is worng with flash 9 or wait for a stable versoin to come out?
