{August 17, 2007}   Gnash 0.8.1 is on the way

As the new version of Gnash (0.8.1) is probably going to be released in some weeks, I decided it was time to make some newer packages available. I’ve done a lot of changes on them, first of all I’ve removed all the library packages, as they don’t seem to make a lot of sense right now. There is still no gnash-dev package and will probably not be at least for a while. I’ve also made available different options of the program, right now one compiled with GTK+ and AGG, and another one with KDE and OpenGL. I might add newer ones in the future. I’m not really sure if those packages, or this approach, will end up in Debian’s repository yet, anyway, due to some reasons I cannot say here, but in any case it’s the first release of packages of Gnash I’m proud of, so I thought someone might be interested.

Hi there!

Really nice to know that the GNash project going forward. Problem though is that GNash is targeting player 7+ while Adobe’s is currently 9 and they’re probably working on version 10. I hope Tamarin helps them catch up sometime soon.

Cheers!

I tried to run “dpkg -i gnash_0.8.0+cvs20070815.1920-1_all.deb” on my Sid AMD64. Failed saying it lacked dependencies gnash-gtk-agg, and gnash-kde-opengl.

When I tried to install them, I got a circular reference back to gnash.

I’m not really very knowledgeable so perhaps I did something wrong. I sure do like gnash, though.



Miry says:

Yup, sorry, there’s a circular dependency, you’re right. I thought it was the right thing to do for the moment, it works OK for me. Otherwise I’ll probably have to add another .deb. I’m considering it anyway.

You can install it with “dpkg -i gnash_0.8.0+cvs20070815.1920-1_all.deb gnash-gtk-agg_0.8.0+cvs20070815.1920-1_amd64.deb” or “dpkg -i gnash_0.8.0+cvs20070815.1920-1_all.deb gnash-kde-opengl_0.8.0+cvs20070815.1920-1_amd64.deb”, and also the plugin. With apt-get or aptitude, If I put it in the repository, would work OK.

Would you prefer me to add a newer gnash-common .deb package and remove the circular dependency? Might that make it easier?

Thanks for the interest,
Miry
