You really do not get it do you!!  The basic functionality should be  
provided by OLPC with a build of gnash optimized for the Geode.
There has been demand for this from deployments and you have ignored  
this fact.
G1G1 users have been wanting this for a long time.  The new G1G1 V2   
users are going to be annoyed with this lack of support.
An additional data point is that Adobes flash support on Linux is not  
optimized for the Geode and is in general not great on the XO and is  
not simple to install..
