From the site:
I will pay $200 to whoever can compose a working and stable recipe for
running Adobe Flash 9 inside of the FreeBSD native version of Opera 9
on FreeBSD 6.x. This shouldn't be that hard - in fact, there is
already a linux-flashplugin9 port.
Comments from other people with some more money not included here...
And now the sad reality check: linux-flashplugin9 will _never_ work on
6.x (lack of linux 2.6 emulation, and this is not a MFC candidate).
Getting it to work on 7.x is possible. "All what you need" is
nspluginwrapper to get it running in the native
firefox/opera/whatever, and someone who is willing to debug the
linuxulator (on -current, as there is a more complete 2.6
compatibility there, and this can be MFCed to 7.x) and find the
bug/problem which is causing the crashes. Whoever is willing to tackle
this: head over to emulation@ (CCed) and ask what debugging
possibilities we have in the linuxulator.
Note: AFAIK linux-flashplugin9 is not completely stable on linux either...
Leela: Well, goodnight. I'm gonna go make my dinners for the next month
and freeze them.
