Maybe this helps, but you need of course NetBSD 5.0.

Did they fix the link? A month or so ago, before Q4 was released, the pkgsrc CVS (pkgsrc-current) wasn't updated, so it was trying to get Flash 9, but was getting the wrong stuff -- actually was getting nothing. I had to manually download the flash installer and update the makefile to get it locally.

After that, Firefox wouldn't work. This wasn't Flash's fault -- there was something messed up with the suse_compat so it wouldn't load Firefox without crashing. So, I never got to test Flash out.

Video works okay but there is a sound sync problem. You see the lips move in a video and a second later or so then you hear the voice. Looks like there might be a fix in current.

I ended up installing firefox3 and flash10. While the flash tests from the adobe site work, and their flash 10 promo video works -- it doesn't seem to work well elsewhere. It doesn't work on youtube and on other *tube sites, if it does come up, it cuts out after several seconds. *tube sites are about the only reason I contemplate using flash!

NetBSD 5.0 RC1
Firefox 3.0.5
Flash Player 10.0.0 d525

^An addendum to my previous post:

After reading some more, it appears that the procfs must be mounted. After mounting, the flash videos do work. It does appear to be a slight syncronization problem -- about an apparent 1/2 sec between video (first) and sound (second) on my system.

Adding this to /etc/fstab will auto-mount procfs upon boot:

Code:
procfs          /proc     procfs   rw

Wine 1.0.1 + Firefox 3.0.5 + Flash seems to work. No issues at all.

Can you make Windows Skype on Wine in NetBSD. That was a trick used by Linux people before there was a Skype for Linux. I do know that
there is Skype 1.4 in pkgsrc I am just curios. By the way how does that Skype work? Any issues at all? Those drivers for USB cameras, how well do they work? There has been a lots of changes from OpenBSD 4.4 to 4.5 regarding those drivers and people are reporting mixing results.

No luck with Skype. It installs but crashes soon after when I try to type in my name. At least for me. I do not have a camera to test out the drivers. Sorry.

Which architecture are you using? I am OpenBSD user and Linux emulator layer exist only for i386. However if you use BSD.MP kernel (for machines with more then one core) Linux applications are not stable at all.
On bsd kernel they are rock stable including Skype (see my posts) but I could not get damn Linux audio to talk to OSS.

Skype is not ported on OpenBSD and I think I did get further away getting Skype working on OpenBSD probably than anybody else
Wine is in OpenBSD ports more for historical reasons. Somebody was making
noise on misc couple mounts ago that he would do necessary kernel work to get Wine compiling on OpenBSD. I haven't seen any code committed.

I thought I was not. It was slight OT we have been going back and fourth about NetBSD and OpenBSD. He was answering my questions about NetBSD and I thought he has asked me something about OpenBSD.

I will be more careful in the future
