That's right, as far as I can tell swf simply will not work on ppc at
the moment.  I tried doing an apt-get source -b flashplayer-mozilla,
however ppc is not a defined target for the source :D  So there you
have it.  Next time definitely include the fact that you're using PPC,
that will help others help you more.

I might suggest you try mol if you really must see swf content.  Check
out the great wiki at
