32-bit firefox + flash on slackware64


hi, i'm trying to get 32-bit firefox and flash working on my laptop (running slackware64). the reason i'm using 32-bit firefox is because the veetle plugin doesn't work on the 64-bit version.

i have installed multilib following the instructions on alienbob's page and managed to get 32-bit firefox and veetle working. however the browser crashes everytime it's on a page with flash. there's no error log on the console too.

is there anything else i need to do to get flash to work? thanks in advance

Have you tried nspluginwrapper? Not sure if that would work, are you using the 3bit flash library?

If you have only installed those compat32 packages that massconvert32.sh makes, you need some additional ones: dbus-glib, curl, libidn, esound, audiofile.

Why You don't use 64-bit flash plugin? Yes, there is one available to grab from adobe.com Search in development service. It's beta, but for me it works good.

installed the packages petri recommended and everything works fine now. thanks !

btw i didn't use the 64 bit flash plugin because 64-bit firefox can't run the veetle plugin..but now i have 32bit firefox for my streaming needs and 64-bit opera for browsing
