64 bit flash question


sorry i am sure this has been discussed but im not finding any easy way around this.

i cant find a proper way to get flash vids working under 64 bit etch. i am not skilled enough to figure out what i need to do. though i remember when i used 64 bit opensuse, it was a breeze to get flash working, i dont remember why, i think it was a konqueror plugin but i cant find one for debian for some reason. i just want to be able to watch some videos on youtube and stuff.

please any help?

thanks.

In Debian, you have to set up a "32-bit chroot" to accomplish this. The alternative is to use an open source Flash replacement such as gnash.

thanks, ill try those out.

is gnash a decent replacement for the proprietary stuff or do you recommend the 32 bit chroot instead?

thanks.

I use gnash, but youtube videos are not high on my priority list. One problem for casual Debian users is that gnash is under heavy development, and in order to keep the most current features, you have to run the Sid version. Running a "mixed system" is common among seasoned Debian users, but a recipe for trouble if you don't know what you're doing.

sounds like a seasoned jackass like me should try the 32 bit chroot tutorial, im trying to stick with stable and testing as if somethings start to break and go bad, its hot water im just not ready for yet.

thanks.
