Problems with Flash Player for Mozilla
I am using RH 9.0 linux, Gnome 2.2.0 (default), and Mozilla 1.2.1 (default). Everything is working fine other than being able to view flash player. I downloaded the flash player (from http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get...7_linux.tar.gz)
and installed in in mozilla.....it showed up in the plugins.....i was also able to browse websites but whenever i came across a page that contained flash in it, the browser closes down.
Is there something else i need to do???
It may be some kind of incompatibility problem as moz 1.2.1 is pretty old, e.g. it cannot run a modern realplayer. Have you tried with a modern mozilla/firefox?
I recently installed it to debian/sarge and what I did was exactly the same: copy (or rather link) libflashplaye.so into mozilla-xxx/plugins, mozilla-firefox-xxx/plugins, and voila, flash was there, no need even to restart the browser.
Well, actually I think flash is more annoying than useful ;-)
have you tried any not-mozilla based browser which uses mozilla plugins (konqueror? Opera?). Perhaps there is something wrong with your graphcis card/driver. That is unfortunately behind my knowledge limit.
BTW, I switched flash off myself. It was too annoyng.
