Re: adding plugins to web browsers

My machine is a new-world ppc, iMac 233; I installed X from the sarge release which I believe is an xfree version vs xorg? During my googling I found some threads that indicated the the xorg release may work better, but I need to research how to replace xfree with xorg. Googling also pointed out setting the depth to 8 which is also mentioned when you run dpkg-reconfigure.

I tried rerunning dpkg-reconfigure and deselected all of the resolutions with depth set to 24. I still get the same problem. When I put it back to 8, I get the results you indicated, the resolution comes up in the highest resolution, but color is limited of course.

I found the players, and did some research on downloading packages from branches other than stable. I think I have this figured out. I'm now researching how to get the browser jvm defined to support applets. I'll post java questions as I need to keep this thread on topic.

Do the standard plugins exist for the mozilla and other browsers that

When I look for plugins on the mozilla site (or netscape) they only
seem to support the 386 architecture.  How do I get plugins to update
the installed browsers?  I've tried to search using aptitude, but I'm
not sure if these packages will be in the stable directories or other

Many binary only plugins are not available for linux/ppc.  The mplayer
plugin plays many formats (package mozilla-mplayer), and there are
flash plugins (libflash-mozplugin, swf-player).  Opening many tabs
with flash will be really slow, though.

My installation of debian went very smoothly.  I booted off an iso
image I downloaded and burned and did the rest of the internet.  Took
me a long time to get my resolution to do something other than
640X480.  I had to set default depth to 8 instead of 24.  Are there
any other solutions to this?

On my machine, enabling no resolutions at all in the configuration
(using dpkg-reconfigure) selects the maximum resolution available.
Try this with 24bpp.  Note: when asking for help, please provide more
detailed information (in this case, at least the machine type and the
X version).
