Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

With Firefox 3.6 from the official repository, and the flash-player-plugin from Slacky.eu installed here. It's worked fine - up until now, where websites either claim it's not installed, or show a blank box instead.
NoScript is installed on my Firefox, but given that on fully trusted pages (of which there are very few) it still happens, and nothing else blocks Flash besides AdBlock and Firefox's own settings (both checked too) I suspect the plugin.
I also tried downloading direct from Adobe, and plonking the libflashplayer.so in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and making a backup of the original one (The one provided from Slacky's package) but to no avail.
So it seems to be the plugin, but for inexplicable reasons.
Would anyone happen to be able to explicate this inexplicability?
Based off the output of that, it looks like everything is there. seamonkey-solibs wasn't installed, but installing it doesn't seem to have changed anything, except now almost all flash shows up as a grey box, instead of some sites claiming it isn't there.
It shows up for me, perfectly fine, oddly. Firefox can see it, Seamonkey too, though it's one might be stored elsewhere.
I've thought of trying GNash, except AFAIK it's not been worked on for some time, and is missing a fair bit of support. Could be wrong though.
