Well, this would perhaps be nice, but I don't think it is possible
Java: would I assume require a plugin for links2 or similar. As far as
I know, such an animal does not exist.
Flash: There are a couple of Free And Open Source flash
implementations - gnash, and swfdec. As far as I know, both require X
as well. This could be wrong though, since I am not up to date on them.
The dependencies don't seem to include xorg or X11 packages - but on
the other hand I doubt that there is a non-X front-end.
mostly uses existing Ubuntu 8.04 .deb packages, I haven't really looked
into this. Perhaps someone can try compiling from source with such
support, and report whether it is a possibility.
A quick google returns this bug report:
perhaps encouraging a backport to Hardy is the way to go for this?
