Hi guys and gals, long time no see!

I've recently acquired a 'new' used laptop from work, and since it's a nice 64 bit machine I figured I'd give our 64 bit release a try. I intend to use this machine intensively and get the most out of it's processor, so I would prefer using a 64 bit OS.

I downloaded and installed VL64-7.1 RC2 with some issues, and it's running fine now. I have found some things that one might report as a bug, however I can't seem to find an announcement thread pointing to a place where we can file bug reports.

It seems like VL64 is pretty much dead, or am I mistaking here? If VL64 is no longer actively developed that's fine, just wondering if I should still use it or if I should switch to vanilla Slackware64 for this machine.

Have a nice weekend y'all!

Not to mention, that policy has been in place for nearly 2 years.

from adobe:

NOTE: Adobe Flash Player 11.2 will be the last version to target Linux as a supported platform. Adobe will continue to provide security backports to Flash Player 11.2 for Linux.

Thanks, although I should have clarified what I meant by saying that some of the programs (games and such) won't work without version 14 or higher.

untested is absolutely used. that is the first repository that a package lands in after being built
which allows for testing prior to being labeled as "stable" i.e. a good viable working package.
you can enable the repo via gslapt or /etc/slapt-get/slaptgetrc if you prefer cli. then do an update
and search for the package. its recommended that after doing so you disable the untested repo again
so as not to accidently introduce a broken package to your system. it is called untested for a reason after all.

with that being said, i test packages locally before submitting to the buildbot and then test them from the untested repo as well
i have tested this addon and it does indeed work just fine. it can be moved out of the untested repo.

there are literally a butt ton of addons for geany so if you want/require any just lets us know and we can add them

You can download a generic version directly from Adobe:
Choose the "other Linux" version and follow the directions in the archive.

Where can I get the latest version of Flash player (or at least the Linux equivalent of it)? I know that the Windows version is up to 14 or higher. I am asking because some of the programs that I am trying to use on Facebook, for example don't work without it, and the most recent version of it that I have is

Hi M.

I will look into this. If you paid for support normally
there is a ticket generated to let us know.

There was nothing generated and is being looked into.

Hi Folks,

One of the things that attracted me to VL is the possibility of paid support.  While my new VL installation is working fairly nicely, there are some things I would like help with.

So I hit the 'pay for support' button on the website, paid via Paypal, and absolutely nothing happened.  No one has got back to me.  I'm happy to consider this as a donation to VL, but I would like to think I can get help again in the future if I need to.

Can anyone tell me what happened?

I updated FireFox to the latest version 32.0.  Prior to this I was able to play soundcloud through my USB sound card.
I tried downgrading to version 19.0 (VL7) but this did not work.  I also tried Opera and Chrome with no success.

Looking at FireFox configuration it is set to use mplayer-in is now Gecko-mediaplayer 1.0.4 (in Firefox) for content types:
  • MP3 audio
  • video/webm

Alsamixer tells me the card 0 is the default which is good.  Play from the CLI works and mplayer works as well.  It is only through the browser where no sound is played.

Any thoughts?

The contents of /etc/asound.conf is

pcm.!default {
   type hw
   card 0

ctl.!default {
   type hw
   card 0

Here are my sound cards:

webber:$ cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [UA1EX          ]: USB-Audio - UA-1EX
                      EDIROL UA-1EX at usb-0000:00:1d.1-1, full speed
 1 [I82801DBICH4   ]: ICH4 - Intel 82801DB-ICH4
                      Intel 82801DB-ICH4 with AD1981B at irq 11
29 [ThinkPadEC     ]: ThinkPad EC - ThinkPad Console Audio Control
                      ThinkPad Console Audio Control at EC reg 0x30, fw 1RHT71WW-3.04
