Adobe AIR and Foresight

I really want to like Foresight. Really. But I keep running into issues with it. Here’s one from this morning . . .

I know this particular issue isn’t the fault of Foresight or rPath, but the fact remains: Ubuntu and Fedora rule the roost when it comes to distributions and if you aren’t on one of them, good luck with third-party software or anything else not in the repositories. 🙁

If only this were the only problem. Conary is too slow, for one thing. And what is up with the gui printer configuration tool? It just plain doesn’t work on my system.

I’ll probably be switching my Foresight system back to using Ubuntu.

  1. Ive been considering checking out conary recently, odd you would post this today. What other distros do you know of that use conary other than Foresight and rpath linux?

  2. I don’t know of any other distributions that use it.

    I had a chance to talk to some of the devs a few months back (rPath is a local company), and I was very impressed with them and Conary. In practice though, things haven’t been as smooth.

  3. Just wonder if you reported a issue about getting Adobe-air for foresight?

    [TForsman@TForsman ~]$ sudo conary update adobe-air –install-label zodyrepo.rpath.org@rpl:devel

    Resolving dependencies…The following updates will be performed:
    Install adobe-air(:java :lib :runtime)=a1_033108-2-1
    continue with update? [Y/n]

    Works fine to install it here, no issue about that
