I've tried this three times, and it woks fine until I reboot, which ends with a completely black logon screen. The first two times reinstalled LL(2.0). the last time, I exited x, and reinstalled flashplugin-installer from the command line & restarted x. I did not uninstall -legacy. The longin screen came back, and flash works only on youtube. I am leaving well enough alone, thought you may find this interesting.The processor is an AMD Athlonxp 2000.

I installed Linux Lite 1.0.8 on a Emachines T2341.  I can't get any videos to work.  No YouTube or embedded videos.  I'm thinking that maybe the computer itself.  The video will start to work, a black screen, then will quickly disappear.  The old computer is very hard to find a video card that will work, ddr.  I installed Lite on a brand new 160 G HHD.  It was very speedy at first then I let Lite upgrade and it became very slow and sticky after that.

I have Lite installed on and older Acer small laptop and it works great on it.  Does anyone have any ideas how I can get Lite to work better?
I hope I am not out of line for talking about other versions of linux on this forum, but if you want something that will run on a really old clunky machine, I have had a lot of luck with puppy precise retro. It is sort of limited, but I have been watching youtube videos on machines with as little as 512 RAM. Adding a swap file helps. I don't think too many people have managed to run Netflix on puppy though. That is what got me trying Linux lite. Netflix is running smooth as butter for me!

Thank you gold_finger, do you think I should add this to our repo's when 2.0 is released?
If that means it will show up in Synaptic then sure, that would probably be a good idea.  (Or you could just add it to the custom install scripts you have listed under "Install Additional Software" in the Menu.)  Depending on how many Win XP users keep their old machines for LL, this could be very useful for some of them (along with everyone else using older machines).  Certainly makes reverting to older flash a lot easier then following all of the steps in the tutorial.

Alright.  Machine doesn't currently have LL on it, but has spare partition to install it on.  Will do test sometime within next few hours and report back.

1.0.8 is fine thanks, don't forget to completely uninstall the shipped flash version first :)

I should have asked this before, but it didn't cross my mind until now.

Does it matter which LL version I test it on?

I can install and test on both 1.0.6 & 1.0.8 if necessary.

Thank you gold_finger.

Please completely remove the shipped plugin first.

The file is here - https://www.linuxliteos.com/files/flashplugin-legacy_11.1.102.63-linuxlite.deb

Please read the warning before installing, and when you go to youtube to test, you will see a warning like this:



Click on 'Activate Abobe Flash' to continue the test.
Look forward to your feedback :)

I'm thinking of creating a 'flashplugin-legacy' package that would take care of playing flash on older machines. But for this to happen I need a volunteer to test on a machine that only has the 'sse' cpu flag. Hope to hear back from someone.
