Angry (Adobe Flash Player)&&(PowerPC) = "Blargh!";

I can't seem to get a PowerPC compatible version of Flash Player (10) for Ubuntu. Does anyone know where or how I might be able to accomplish this? If not, is there some alternative for using Flash? Maybe a 3rd party software? And yes, the title was based off of C++...

As far as I am aware, there never was and never will be any official Flash release for PPC Linux. It just isn't going to happen.

There are open source alternatives to Flash player, most notably Gnash (which can be built on PPC), but they only support up to Flash 7 or so. Very little Flash content out in the wild is still that old, so it isn't terribly useful for general web browsing.


flashplayer, powerpc, ubuntu804
