FreeBSD 5.1 goodness
I now have a wonderful FreeBSD 5.1 system on my laptop. It works great, and it feels faster and more responsive than OpenBSD. That's allright, OpenBSD and FreeBSD have very different goals, very roughly speaking they are security and performance respectively.
# Enable the /usr/ports/www/flashpluginwrapper port. LD_PRELOAD=/usr/local/lib/libflashplayer.so.1 export LD_PRELOAD
And I also did:
cp /usr/local/lib/flash/libflashplayer.so \ /usr/X11R6/lib/firebird/lib/mozilla-1.5a/plugins/libflashplayer_linux.so cp /usr/local/lib/flash/ShockwaveFlash.class \ /usr/X11R6/lib/firebird/lib/mozilla-1.5a/plugins
I also have the native Java 2 SDK 1.3.1 installed as a plugin, I think it's required to use the Flashplayer. It also eats around 100 megs of memory when it starts. Urgh!
Firebird is a wonderful browser, and if you're not afraid to edit your
userContent.css files you can make it just about whatever you
want. Look through David Tensers Firebird Tips &
Tricks for inspiration. That page also tell you how to adjust the
language preferences in a HTTP request, something
that's missing from the Tools -> Options... dialog.
