I noticed that on my F14 32-bit system there is a package installed:
$ yum info nspluginwrapper
Name : nspluginwrapper
Arch : i686
Version : 1.3.0
Release : 14.fc14
Size : 430 k
Repo : installed
>From repo : anaconda-InstallationRepo-201010031452.i386
Summary : A compatibility layer for Netscape 4 plugins
URL : http://gwenole.beauchesne.info/projects/nspluginwrapper/
License : GPLv2+
Description : nspluginwrapper makes it possible to use Netscape 4 compatible
: plugins compiled for i386 into Mozilla for another architecture,
: e.g. x86_64.
: This package consists in:
: * npviewer: the plugin viewer
: * npwrapper.so: the browser-side plugin
: * nspluginplayer: stand-alone NPAPI plugin player
: * mozilla-plugin-config: a tool to manage plugins installation
: and update
Once I start playing youtube flash video one of its executables, npviewer.bin,
The problem is that when I stop playing youtube, it still is shown in top and
contributing approx. 2-3% CPU, but also in Powertop and contributing approx.
15% to wakeups.
this package is part of 32-bit installation instructions; it is even said that
... a default graphical install of 32-bit Fedora already includes both
nspluginwrapper and ...
As I understand this package is not needed on 32-bit Fedora.
So why is it included at all ?
But even if it is, why is it activated, at least under circumstance described
As a mater of fact, I removed it (there were no dependencies on it), started
youtube and all was OK.
Am I missing something here, or Fedora distro creators and maintainers are ?
