Subject Re: [DISCUSS] 4.8.0 Release for Linux
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2012 15:19:52 GMT
An official Apache release is a source code distribution.   There is no
official support for building Flex from sources on Linux as a couple of
tools like Pixel Bender Toolkit are not available on Linux.

You are more than welcome to take the binary distribution and the various
repackaging scripts and see how far you get with it.
