Title: getFlash SCM and TCZ installation error
Post by: hengels on October 27, 2012, 10:12:56 AM
The Flash app and Scm-app don't install correctly. There appears always an error indicating (in red) that the sources from Adobe can't get downloaded.
I need this urgently. Who has an idea and/or can help?

Maybe the source used is no longer available, I will look into it.

getFlash11.scm is working fine here in downloading and making a flash.scm extension.

ok- so once it builds the flash.scm, is it automatically activated?

And where is is stored?  I'm trying to get it to work with opera12.

thx

It should be stored in your tce/optional directory as determined by /etc/sysconfig/tcedir.

It does not load automatically, use "scm-load -i flash" to load it.

Opera 12 does not work with the current available flash, it is an Opera issue.

I've been trying to download Getflash11 all day with Apps Browser as well but no go. Keeps on giving me an error at the end. I have tried using different mirrors but still nothing. So nobody has looked into this yet?

Are you trying to install getFlash11.tcz or getFlash11.scm?

Is it the extension itself that will not download or is it the fetching of the flash source once the extension is installed that is failing?

I see that the scm version is working, but the tcz version errors when downloading flash source.  There are a lot of changes in the tcz version since I last maintained it, so the current maintainer would be the best one to address it, and the TCE Bugs section would be the place to bring it up. 

Thanks.

Yes, it is the tcz extension and just how you mentioned it in your post above "errors when downloading flash source". If i have any further issues, i'll just use the scm extension and do what you have mentioned in your previous posts to start it, thanks for your help.

I have notified robc who has made improvements to getFlash11.tcz since I last maintained it so he can perhaps make the adjustments.

Problem is with getFlash11.sh, where SRCNAME is wrong. It should be
SRCNAME="install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz"
instead of
SRCNAME="install_flash_player_11_linux_i386.tar.gz"

Is that with the scm version, and if so is it the latest one?

The latest one uses the correct SRCNAME.

No, he is probably talking about the App Browser version GetFlash11.tcz which is still not working.

The tcz version has had major changes since I last maintained it, the current maintainer would be the best to update it.

I went in to change the SRCNAME in the tcz version. Tested with Firefox and passed the You Tube test.
If you are not getting it from repo.tinycorelinux.net then perhaps wait until mirror syncs.

I have tried several different mirrors and still getting that error message, but gives me the OK install after the error message on the bottom of the Apps Browser. I even search for flash11 in the OnBoot Maintenance and can't find it. Is it working for anybody else? Okay, so i finally got that repo mirror you mentioned in your post above working, but it doesn't even get to download anything and just gives me a failed.

Update: Now i have noticed that it does start downloading the dep. (nss.tcz, nspr.tcz, and squashfs-tools-4.x.tcz) but right when it tries to download flash it just gives me a failed message. I'm not sure what exactly is happening in that small box because it disappears so fast. This is using the repo mirror by the way.

Was a permission error on server. Fixed.

This time I tested via a fresh install using CorePlus 4.7.3 and downloading everything, first firefox, OSS, and getFllash11. It worked as expected.

I tried it again this morning and this time it finally went through successfully with the installation. Thank you so much.
