You will need to set up a 32 bit chroot to enable flash.

Hello!!

I trying to try that right now

I read that I have to use this patches
https://sourceforge.net/forum/forum....orum_id=380195
which I don know how to use with the source.... Any tip will do

and when I run ./configure on the gplflash source dir, I get:


Code:
.
...
checking if g++ supports -c -o file.o... yes
checking whether the g++ linker (/usr/bin/ld -m elf_x86_64) supports shared libraries... yes
checking dynamic linker characteristics... GNU/Linux ld.so
checking how to hardcode library paths into programs... immediate
checking whether stripping libraries is possible... yes
appending configuration tag "F77" to libtool
checking for jpeg_destroy_decompress in -ljpeg... no
configure: error: *** GPLFlash requires libjpeg.
But I have libjpeg:
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa|grep libjpeg
libjpeg-6b-33
libjpeg-6b-33
[root@localhost ~]#

i386 and X86_64...
So....



Any ideas??
Thanks for your atention

you need to install development files for libjpeg.. I have no idea what package that would be on fedora.. but google would probably be of some help.. something like libjpeg-dev

some features aren't implemented in gplflash though.. it can be somewhat annoying, fscommand for example.

You have to do a manual install. Find the "flashplayer.xpt" and "libflashplayer.so" files from the "install_flash_player_7_linux" directory where you extracted the tarball. Copy these 2 files into your browser's /plugins/ directory and you'll be good to go!

this is just a fact of the install script only works on 32bit platforms, the plugin works fine.

NSPLUGINWRAPPER got opensource, and know it works very good (for me at least) with the 32bist flash plugin on my Firefox 64bits (on Ubuntu 6.06 64bits)

http://www.gibix.net/dokuwiki/en:pro...spluginwrapper

You can find a how-to in the ubuntuforum:

Quote:
Instructions to install:

1) Download the Plugin and the Viewer from http://www.gibix.net/dokuwiki/en:raz...spluginwrapper
2) Install Alien, if not already installed.
3) Convert the downloaded rpm's to deb's (sudo alien -d *.deb)
4) Install the newly created debs (Install in this order: sudo dpkg -i nspluginwrapper-i386_0.9.90-2_amd64.deb, sudo dpkg -i nspluginwrapper_0.9.90-2_amd64.deb) -- If I got the order wrong, you'll know because it won't install.
5) Download the plugin you want to install, and extract the .so file. For example, to install flash, grab the tar.gz file from Macromedia's website, and extract libflashplayer.so.
6) Move the plugin (example, libflashplayer.so) to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. This is where nspluginwrapper stores the main plugin, so it's probably a nice folder to keep them.
7) Now we need nsplugwrapper to make the new plugin, so call: /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/x86_64/npconfig -i /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so (if wanting the flash plugin, of course). Depending on whether or not you run that command with sudo, it will either end up in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, or ~/.mozilla/plugins. If you ran it as sudo, you'll need to link it to either your profile's plugins or the main plugins (/usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins). Or copy, doesn't matter. The old plugin must not move, as it's path seems to become hard coded in the new plugin created (which has "npwrapper-" prepended to the old name).
