Web Browser and Flash
« on: April 10, 2013, 05:30:47 AM »
Hi Everyone,
I have been through the repo, but did not notice any graphical web browsers or flash.  Am I missing something, or are they not there?
Thanks,
Jim

Thanks!  I can't believe I missed Dillo.  I went through the list a couple of times.

I don't think Adobe has made Flash available for ARM linux.

Both Dillo3 and DWB worked really well on Pi-Debian derivates. I'm currently using PiBang. (not as fast as ArmyCore, but it has plenty of software).


As for Flash (you mean want some Youtube, right?) , I read somewhere you could use ffmpeg or any other rtp streamer to watch some videos from a simple terminal...



TinyCore is a wonderful distro. We just need to add more and more apps.

What are you missing in piCore and for what purpose are you using RPi?

What I'm missing?

Most of the stuff I know it's already working on other distros for Pi:

- JWM or PEKWM
- Tint2, BmPanel
- Desktop tools like Feh
- Raspi-config , or a way to enable SSH out-of-box (I just can't make Dropbear to work).
- emulators, SDL, and things like that.

You know, a lot of more apps! But I'm patient.

Try openssh. And dont't forget to read its info file.

SDL is running here and for testing an SDL game also. Just need some time to pack it.

Once I wanted to use my Pi as an Internet radio. I recall been using mpc/mpd on Raspbian...
neither mpd or ffmpeg are not available yet.

Can we achieve this by other means atm?

@tinypoodle

That was either a spambot, or (more sadly) a paid propaganda poster. The sentence is an exact match with 13k google hits.

I should have known better...   ::)

Good catch googling the sentence - getting 933k exact matches here, at least with the part I remember.

OTOH if it was a bot, that bodes well for AI ;)
