Re: [K12OSN] Web site problems

This is a very long standing problem with the Linux version of Macromedia's
Flash plugin.  It is only version 5, and extremely unstable.  For over a 1.5
years now they have refused to fix it.

Mozilla Bugzilla report
LTSP Petition to Macromedia, please sign

Macromedia Flash 6 for Windows works great on LTSP if installed with
CodeWeavers CrossOver plugin, but unfortunately CrossOver has a per-seat
charge, and it only works if the thin client X servers have the XRENDER
extension.  Most of my older thin client machines don't have XRENDER. =(
Anyway, please sign the petition and perhaps put more pressure on Macromedia
yourself to fix the native Flash plugin.
