I don't understand. Even with a live CD when there hasn't been any
apt-get update, If you want to play a video requiring a restricted codec
to be played, the program (totem) displays a dialogue box and propose to
install the adequate codecs (gstreamer-plugins-ugly), it selects the
good repository and make the "apt-get update" on the fly. Why the same
thing shouldn't be working for Adobe Flash Player ?
