    xkcd & flash


    Someone here turned me onto the comic XKCD a while back. Being as nobody ever posts to this particular sub-forum, and I still can't get flash working properly, I thought this appropriate:

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    ROFLMAO! Flash works ok for me, but it may depend upon video drivers, OS / kernel versions, and all that cruft. Personally, I think XKCD hit this nail on the head!
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    I have an old Mozilla binary that did flash OK, but then I upgraded something it depended on, and now it fails silently.

    Any idea what this means?
    Code:
    poll([{fd=3, events=POLLIN}, {fd=8, events=POLLIN}, {fd=12, events=POLLIN|POLLPRI}, {fd=14, events=POLLIN|POLLPRI}, {fd=15, events=POLLIN|POLLPRI}, {fd=16, events=POLLIN|POLLPRI}, {fd=4, events=POLLIN}], 7, 921) = -1 EINTR (Interrupted system call)
    It's the last line from strace when mozilla dies.
    Interrupted system call? I think it's not catching some signal properly.

    That's what it means. I guess someone "fixed" something.
