Tried gnash but it did not work for me. It had many crashes, lockups etc. I am 
running slackware 12.0, VESA video driver and konqueror as my browser. I will 
not recommend it now for sure. 

I Dont know about swfdec though. Never tried it myself.

And I don't think flash should be endorsed by FOSS. It is not an open format 
AFAIK. I consider not having flash a feature.. ;) especially with metered 
downloads..
