Which Flash Package? "Flashplugin-nonfree" or "flashplayer-mozilla"


Dont remember seeing 2 different flash packages months ago in the multimedia repository, they say they conflict with each other, which is better to install?

I've had better luck with flashplugin-nonfree, including on 64 bit systems. Then again, it isn't open source.

Peace,

Using KDE

I'm using KDE with Lenny. I use the Iceweasel browser and install:
totem-mozilla, mozilla-ctxextensions, mozplugger, sun-java6-plugin.
Takes care of just about everything.
