just upgraded powerbook g4 to jaunty and cannot find ppc-codecs or libflash-support or flashplugin-nonfree? I have the medibuntu repos installed. Is there another place to get them??

Not sure about the others, but Adobe does not make a PPC version of Flash that is *not* for Mac OS X.

You can try Gnash and see if it works for you.

However, in my experience, Linux on PPC as a desktop OS is a somewhat painful experience. Now, Linux on PPC as a server is solid and stable and great. That's what I use for my server.

Don't try Gnash! I installed it and it was slow in websites with flash.

I had ppc-codecs installed under intrepid. I read at the medibuntu site that they have been removed from jaunty.
