    AIR on non-supported Linux distributions

    ____n____
      I work for a company that uses flash extensively and is very excited about the new release of AIR for Linux. However I haven't been able to install AIR on our target OS. We use a modified Linux-From-Scratch OS because our applications run in a semi-embedded environment; it's small and we can easily customize it to suit our needs. Fedora/Ubuntu/OpenSuse have too large a footprint for our applications. I even tried compiling/installing the rpm package manager to see if I could fool the AIR installer but that didn't work :)

      I'm aware of this thread...

      ...suggesting use of the SDK to run AIR apps.

      So I have a couple questions...

      Are there any plans to support installation on other Linux distributions? This might be of value to Slackware/Gentoo users as well.

      Is there any downside to running AIR apps in terms of performance/capabilities using the ADL via the SDK?

      Thanks in advance.
