I assume it hasn't installed properly because when i go to movie playing sites like metacafe it tells me i don't have the latest version of flash player installed.
can anyone help please... then i can move on to my next problem!
Alot of flash is being written in version 8..... they haven't released v.8 for Linux, and aren't likely to, the dev team is working on v.9 at the moment.
There are FOSS like gnash that are trying to rival it but it's still a bit behind i believe
This is what happens with closed proprietry software, you either have to reverse engineer or wait for creators to release binaries for your OS, if it was open we'd all be good, whatever OS we used.
(assuming you have configured it right, that's probably your prob)
