    New x86_64 adobe flash plugin (alpha)

    Adobe released a 64bits ALPHA version of flash plugin. I'm using it and works perfect. No more nspluginwrapper and 386 libs.

    Download here:

    I have made a rpm for the new 64 bit plugin


    Code:
    su
    yum erase flash-plugin nspluginwrapper* 
    wget http://www.dfm.uninsubria.it/compiz/fusion-testing/flashplayer.x86_64/flash-plugin-10.0.20.7-2.x86_64.rpm
    rpm -Uvh flash-plugin-10.0.20.7-2.x86_64.rpm

    It should work for any version of Fedora

    Here's what I used, with firefox 3.1 beta:
    Code:
    # http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html
    
    rpm -e flash-plugin
    rpm -e nspluginwrapper
    
    wget http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/libflashplayer-10.0.d20.7.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz
    tar -zxf libflashplayer-10.0.d20.7.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz
    
    chown root:root libflashplayer.so
    chmod 755 libflashplayer.so
    mv libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/

    I just copied it into /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins which existed but was empty.
    I did have to set opera to look there.

    On to CentOS to see if it works there too.

    If you had used my guide the setup script would have done it for you

    Ah, I didn't even realize that was a custom tarball. Oops.

    On CentOS, it also worked. At first I had a bit of trouble with sound, but as I'm a technical genius, I quickly realized that the light on the speakers, which indicates that I've turned on the power, was off, and pushing the power button quickly remedied it.

    Why remove nspluginwrapper? it seems to work here with nspluginwrapper installed. nspluginwrapper is important to have installed. SELinux relies on it to keep bad webscripts contained.

    nspluginwrapper wraps the the 64 bit plugin

    P.S I don't use Selinux .

    <sarcasm>I have that "power light off" problem with my speakers, too. I've been searching Google and FedoraForum for months and have yet to find a solution. I am so relieved to see I am not the only one -- I had begun to believe that I was the problem. Can you post details, scripts, or photos of your solution?</sarcasm>

    Kidding aside -- I'm not making fun of you. Your post made me grin because it reminds me of me ... both from the perspective of being [briefly] flummoxed by the obvious and the self-deprecating humor. We technical people often look for the most complicated possible cause for problems. That all has to do with how well we understand all the complicated details that make computers work. As I have gotten older I've learned (many times the hard way) that instead of spending 45 minutes checking the chain of loaded kernel modules and decoding hex dumps from /proc/, it is often a better use of time to check the power button first. Unless you're trying to show off to someone who is non-technical ... then you should fire up tcpdump and nmap for every networking "issue" (just don't let them catch you peeking to see if the network cable is plugged in or if the enable/disable switch on their wireless card is toggled).

    that is the idea of nspluginwrapper ( it wraps plugins). for those that want to benefit from fedoras security features: do not erase nspluginwrapper.

    All kidding aside (and no, I didn't think you were making fun of me in any sense save to join in the laughter--that is, in a good way), I remember in my early computer days, when my cats were kittens, reinstalling an O/S only to find, in the end, that that one of them had pulled out a cable.

    First rule of networking--always check that it's plugged in.
