Installing Silverlight for OEL 6/7 Linux
You are Welcome! The Tutorial shows you Step-by-Step How to Install the Silverlight Support for Firefox and Opera Web Browsers by the Pipelight Package on Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.X/7.X i686/x8664 GNOME/KDE GNU/Linux.
Pipelight allows one to run Windows browser plugins in the context of Linux browsers.
Especially relevant: Pipelight has been Discontinued and is Not Working in PPAPI Browsers with the best Security features.
To Achieve this Pipelight do:
- Connects the Windows DLL with the Linux process
- Translates between platform dependent differences on the NPAPI
- Uses a Patched Wine version
Pipelight needs to start Wine to execute the pluginloader. This May Slow down the Start of your Browser.
