Currently there is no netscape-flash version 9... could you make an ebuild for it? Flash 7 is lousy :D
Comment 1 Jakub Moc (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-07-18 14:23:48 UTC
No, we couldn't. Latest linux version is 7.0.63

    * Adobe Flash Player 9 leads a new generation of dynamic media and rich Internet applications

Not avail yet for linux. A shame, because requires flash > 8 to show scores! "This application requires features of Flash 8, at minimum,"

Just a friendly reminder, the beta is on!

(PS, I'm aware the dev's are quite busy and shouldn't be bothered with 0-day bumps)

Patch between netscape-flash-7.0.68.ebuild and netscape-flash-

Since the ebuild was so simple, I went ahead and updated the current one.

Note how SRC_URI isn't entirely the best.

Tidied ebuild.

Is it too early to put this in portage?
