Medialib (SUNWmlib) and Adobe flash plugin for Firefox

Hi All,

 So I'm just playing with B132 on the Acer One 8.9".

Even though I downloaded the flash plugin from Adobe and installed it to /usr/lib/firefox/plugins it would not show up in firefox.

I found out in the end that you need to have SUNWmlib installed for the flash plugin to work.

I also tested the attachment in the http://defect.opensolaris.org/bz/show_bug.cgi?id=14099 , after a restart both the Acer One 8.9" and MSI wind could run compiz.

Comments:

You can run compiz on your little ol' 8.9" netbook but my big honkin' laptop can't.

Something is just not right with this. :-)

Hi Alan,

My big honking Asus C90S runs compiz just fine on the Nvidia card.

So do all my netbooks.

What's it doing Alan ?

Can you tell me what video hardware you have, also what version of OpenSolaris ?

Yea, I know only the NVidia cards on OpenSolaris have 3D support. But my Intel Chip on Linux has 3D support and I just want it. Time to buy a new laptop.

Hi Alan,

All the Intel Atom netbooks have Intel video cards, compiz works fine.

Have you tried moving the /etc/X11/xorg.conf out of the way for a test.

Are you seeing the libglx issues in /var/log/Xorg.0.log as defined in the bugtrac ?

That's not what I was lead to believe.

http://lists.freedesktop.org/archives/compiz/2009-December.txt

I asked first.

Now that you mention it I wasn't aware of any issue's in bugtrac but I just took a gander at Xorg.0.log and it states:

(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/GL/64/libglx.so
dlopen: ld.so.1: Xorg: fatal: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/GL/64/libglx.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/GL/64/libglx.so
(II) UnloadModule: "glx"
(EE) Failed to load module "glx" (loader failed, 7)

So if I understand you if this issue gets sorted out then this laptop will run compiz?

If so, thanks! If not, thanks anyways.

Hi Alan,

Did you get the file and get compiz to work ?

Hope you did.

Yes and No. /var/log/Xorg.0.log looks a lot better with the updated file and if I run the test program:

/usr/bin/glxgears -info

GL_RENDERER = Software Rasterizer
GL_VERSION = 2.1 Mesa 7.4.4
GL_VENDOR = Mesa Project

That works and I can see the 3 gears meshing on the screen. However, if I enable anything under Visual Effects then I get the all white screen as mentioned in the build 130 release notes.

I checked the workaround of fixing the links but in build 132 the work around has already been applied. Another post says to do the same to the "mesa" directory but on my system it is not where it is indicated that it should be so I'm leaving it alone.

I'm going to try booting the 129 Live CD and see if that works.

Thanks for the help so far.

Close but no cigar. Boot the 129 Live CD. Check /var/log/Xorg.0.log. Everything looks good.

Click on Appearance and then Visual Effects.

I get the white screen.

Try ctrl-alt-mouse. The cube is loaded and will rotate however when it comes to rest the screen goes white again and stays that way. That's all.

thanks!,
alan

Congrats on the move to Oracle.

Thanks Alan, not sure how much longer I'll be working on Solaris, OpenSolaris or netbooks.

Check my earlier posts about Compiz on netbooks, I had an xorg.conf file that stopped it happening.

No problem. I just picked up a Dell 630 with Intel graphics. Before I bought I enable compiz and beryl and the cube run just fine. If I had stayed with my nVidia strategy I would have missed this one. $240 and it only needs a battery. What a steal.

Thanks!,
alan
