Little things that matter in language design
Instead of upgrading my parents' computer when I am next home, I'm going to install Debian instead. The only problem will be explaining where the Firefox logo went...
Ubuntu now offering mainline kernel builds
Posted Mar 4, 2009 21:08 UTC (Wed) by oak (guest, #2786)
I switched from Ubuntu (Feisty) to Debian (Lenny) half a year ago and
about only thing that's worse is that no Flashplayer (neither Open Source
nor proprietary) works properly in Konqueror (I'm using KDE3 desktop).
There's no update applet for KDE(3) either, but I'm doing my updates with
Synaptic anyway, so it's not a problem (IMHO viewing package changes is
much better in Gnome Synaptic than KDE Adept).

What are the symptoms?
Are you using AMD64? If so, are you using the 64-bit plugin? Also do you have konqueror-nsplugins installed, and are you using gtk-qt-engine? I know that the KDE3 version of gtk-qt-engine causes Flash to crash in KDE4, which I assumed was due to version incompatibilities, but it's possible that it just doesn't work with Flash in Konqueror at all.

Crashes and freezes.

32-bit (6 years old Athlon XP). Have nsplugins. KDE is v3.
