It works almost perfectly for me ! Thanks for this, Juergen !.
I had to say "almost perfectly" because in myspace, for instance, it takes a
while for the "flashies" to start. One thing I noticed is that if I terminate
FF, npviewer.bin remains loaded and I have to kill it.
Here is what I've got:
CPU: Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.20GHz (3199.66-MHz 686-class CPU)
real memory = 2146304000 (2046 MB)
nvidia0: <GeForce 7100 GS> on vgapci0
FreeBSD 7.1-PRERELEASE #3: Wed Oct 29 18:37:07 BRT 2008 (i386)
kern.ipc.shmmax: 33554432 -> 1036870912
kern.ipc.shmall: 8192 -> 261072
compat.linux.osrelease: 2.4.2 -> 2.6.16
firefox-3.0.3,1 AND 184.108.40.206 (both work!)
The mtv site worked fine all the way !! Great oldie stuff !
FreeBSD since version 2.2.8 [not Pro-Audio.... YET!!] (99,7% winedows FREE)
