|Easily downloaded and installed flash9. Ran several youtube videos. Nothing crashed. Worked flawlessly.|
I'm not concerned about the youtube videos (which work with flash 7 anyway), but AM interested in being able to access my brokerage accounts, which are switching to flash 9 for loggins.....(e.g, TradeKing, as of Feb 9th)
I thought unionfs were more efficient in terms of RAM; also easier to build. (I gave up trying to figure out why my initial attempts creating UCI's loaded from some directories but not others....nobody else was able to solve it either, as I recall).
Anybody intending to run a 2.6 kernel system will have to have capable hardware, i.e., much more ram. The kernel alone in 2.6 is twice the size of 2.4.
As for efficiency, legacy boots faster than unionfs in my 2.6, both use ramdisk as storage, unionfs has much "housekeeping to do" (an additional process). Unionfs if desired can still be used as an extension, see unionfs.dsl in the repository.
The youtube flash9 is a simple "acid test", as flash9 in current DSL crashes. I am not an avdanced web user so if you know any other flash9 tests I can try please let me know.
