    Duplicate code.
    gnash implements the functionality that has been discovered via reverse engineering and other general hacking.

    The idea here is to start from fresh using spec as a guide, build something complete and good without all the hacks.

    Problem with shoveling in heaps of gnash is that you'll end up with a hybrid mess that doesn't follow spec and doesn't work right.

    Does anybody know how to get it to work though?

    I have Ubuntu 10.04 with the defualt Firefox installation.

    I tried installing Lightspark from the available PPA and removing adobe but it didn't work.

    Regards,

    J1M.
