Unfortunately Flash 10.3 isn't available for 64-bit systems and 11.2 is as stable as the old Tacoma Narrows bridge...

This thread on NVNews.net provides workarounds for those of us with NVIDIA hardware and Flash 11.2:

It's interesting.

Thanks, buddy.

Unfortunately, in my particular case I run nouveau.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, cfdisk . I'm a to the Slack (as of two days ago), and I was , not getting anywhere with getting a working Flash player (tried the SlackBuild, tried the manual install, thought about trying the ol' "throw money at it" trick, but this isn't MS Lose). 10.3 works for me though, and that's a start on it.

You are very welcome, new born penguin noviante.

I am glad that you see a light at the end of the tunnel too.

Never bang your head against the wall by yourself. Come here to bang together. It's the team work.

The big bad flash

Hello,
I have Mageia 1 installed on 2 systems. I had a system update afterwards one machine the flash player did not work in firefox or chromium. The only way to get it to work was download the rpm file from the abode site. The site said it was 11.2.202.233, but after it was downloaded the file was 10.3.183.18. this works.
Searching with google etc other poeple have had this problem too.
The system it works on has an nvidia card with the driver, the other one has an s3 card.

cheers

As a friendly reminder for those of us who, like me, can't get Flash 11 working, Adobe didn't abandon Flash 10.

The latest 10.3.183.20 came out in June.
