MicroB for 770
This is not official support by any means, and perhaps you're better off using
2007 Hacker Edition instead, but we've
a build of MicroB for OS 2006.
What's special about it?
Not much, it's basically the same MicroB as you would get on OS 2007.
How does it work?
The same way it works in 2007, it integrates with the system /usr/bin/browser,
you can still switch back to Opera (8.0 in the case of 2006, instead of 8.5 on
2007) at any time.
What's the catch?
- Plug-ins. The plug-ins MicroB uses are basically standard NPAPI plug-ins. For
4.2007, updated plug-ins were shipped that were compatible with MicroB.
Unfortunately, we don't think we can get a license to ship the 2007 plug-ins
for the 770. So officially, if you want Flash 9, you'll need to buy an N800
and install 4.2007.
What does it take to get Flash 9 working?
Flash 9 requires:
- the actual Flash plug-in
- a library (libplayback) that
provides support for cooperatively sharing the sound device.
It's sort of a bug-fix response to problems involving Flash and Media player.
- a symlink so that it can be
found by consumers (Flash).
How do I install it?
- Use this install file
- As usual, you'll be prompted to add a repository if you don't have it
- As with OS 2007, if some of your repositories are unavailable, the
installation won't work. If that happens, you'll need to select microb-browser
from the installable applications section of Application manager.
