I thought someone already had x86 firefox with flash working...  I was actually thinking about revisiting my Shiira build to see if I can get plug-ins to work on Intel..  Just not sure where to start.. :)

Ok.. This is a Universal binary... Since I've never used this before, I couldn't do much in the way of testing.. It does execute on Intel, though.

Please let me know how well it works.

Edit: Seems to be having trouble accepting this attachment... Hmm..

Since the forum seems to not like attachments at the moment, here's a link:
FFView 0.9

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Thanks. It runs good, the only problem is that it displays the images completely with a blue tint. (Intel gma 900 card here, quartz extreme enabled). I've seen this before, also with the port of vlc and which could be fixed if you changed the output mode to quartz video. Any idea how it can be fixed with ffview?

Actually, I looked for it after my post... The only thing I found as the "Better Firefox" build, which is actually a build of Deer Park when you download it... It is supposed to support plug-ins, but it does not work with flash as I previously thought...

Of course, I thought some more about this... Thing is, you run Safari or Shiira with Rosetta and the plug-ins work... That makes me think that the issue is that the plug-in isn't "universal"... That the plug-in for flash is only for PPC. I'm guessing that the plug-in attempts to run in the same mode as the main application... There does not appear to be a way to force the plug-in to run under Rosetta while the main app runs native Intel...

If anyone comes up with a way to run flash in an Intel native browser, that would be a great thing... I doubt we'll see it though, until Macromedia releases a new version of flash that is a Universal plug-in, if such a thing can exist.

Hmm.. But FFView renders in OpenGL, right?

I've tested with some of the sample images (iChat icons, actually) and I see the odd coloration you are referring to. Unfortunately, I have no idea how to fix it...

I believe this is already a Universal... 

And if it's not, you don't need it anyhow..  Just use Apple's Remote Desktop as a VNC server.  Go to System Preferences > Sharing > Apple Remote Desktop and enable it.  With it highlighted, hit the "Access Privileges" button.  Select the User you want it to run for, and check the "VNC viewers may control screen with password:" and enter a password.  You can leave everything else unchecked, since it doesn't really matter for VNC viewers controlling it.

OSXVNC is PowerPC as reported by OS X. Apple's Remote Desktop doesnt work well as it doesnt behave with almost all non-mac VNC clients. It either doesnt understand the encoding or gives distorted images back.
I need something I can use from a PC and doesnt crash. Neither of these fit the bill.

Well, yes - it does show up as a PowerPC app on my Intel box too...

But, version 1.61 was supposed to add Intel support to some degree... Taken from http://www.redstones...e.com/vnc.html:

Change Log:

Added support for Mac OS X running on INTEL.

(It's the 2nd item from the top of the Change log on their site)

So, it doesn't say it's a Universal binary, but it seems to indicate some added support for running it on the Intel platform... Perhaps emailing them would be helpful.. I emailed them after installing 1.61 and noticing that it was taking up tons of processor, sitting idle... They quickly emailed me back saying they had not seen that issue, but by the next day they had emailed me again saying that there was a corrupt upload to sourceforge causing those CPU issues and to try again.. So, they appear to be fairly responsive...

Perhaps it was only preliminary support for Intel... Or perhaps they don't realize there is an issue, like the extra CPU cycle problem I encountered.

Well guys, I'm about to pack up my Dev Kit machine until next weekend (unless my ADD2-N card arrives early). You see, it doesn't currently have a "home", what with all my other machines crowding the area, and I don't want to leave it out where it is due to very small children that will be here this week while I'm away at work...

I'll still be able to try various ports on my PPC machine if I get the time this week... My time will be much more limited than this past weekend, though.

i "solved" the unstable "problem" on lamer0's adiumx
just turn off the client sounds and will work perfectly

but if you turn it on or use some sound pack, the laggy desktop will be back when you recivile a new message or a contact take off or come up in your list.

the adiumx I compiled is from cvs, some stuff *MIGHT* be broken since its a work in progress. The sound issues might be a trivial endian issue I can fix. CoreAudio lets you have byte sex ;-P (byte swapping)

For people that own a Creative or Dell DJ MP3 player there is a program for OSX called XNJB. Currently I cannot get it run on x86. I posted a thread on the autors forum and he is willing to make a univseral binary version but needs some guidance. Maybe someone can help out with this. I'm sure there are quite a few people that can use this program.

Thanks

USE KDX Client/Server. http://www.haxial.org/

Works on OSX, OSX86, Win XP, Win XP64, Linux.

Open KDXclient on one machine, server on the other. Open port 10700 on the server machine. Connect to the server (the machine you want to control), and scroll down to "View/Control Display". Can't get any easier than that.

I use it to control my PC from a Mac, and vice versa.

Thanks for posting the FFView universal binary, but it needs a fix:

FFTile.m:
Replace
glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_RECTANGLE_EXT, 0, GL_RGB8, width, height, 0,
   GL_BGRA, GL_UNSIGNED_INT_8_8_8_8_REV, data); // REV: ARGB -> BGRA
with:
#ifdef __LITTLE_ENDIAN__
 glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_RECTANGLE_EXT, 0, GL_RGB8, width, height, 0,
   GL_BGRA, GL_UNSIGNED_INT_8_8_8_8, data);
	#else
 glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_RECTANGLE_EXT, 0, GL_RGB8, width, height, 0,
   GL_BGRA, GL_UNSIGNED_INT_8_8_8_8_REV, data); // REV: ARGB -> BGRA
	#endif

Please rebuild FFView and release a new universal binary.
Patrick (one of the authors).

P.S. Will release all upcoming official releases as universal binaries.

Truthfully, Apple should be eternally grateful to us :). We've just singlehandedly jumpstarted universal binary production. Now every developer and their dog can port their apps without paying apple :D.

I don't suppose anyone would be willing to build electric sheep?
