You are sure you installed it and not just built the package, right?

What browser is it not working in? Are you using an official package for that browser?

If it is firefox check URL about:plugins to see if it is listed. If you have other versions of flash installed manually in other locations they could be conflicting. The slackBuild should have installed it under /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. No other copies of libflashplayer.so should be needed elsewhere.

libjavaplugin_oji.so is for java. So your java plugin may be broken as well.

libjavaplugin_oji.so -> /usr/lib/java/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

Did you check about:plugins? Please list everything it has.

You mean everything in Mozilla plugions folder?

there is libflashplayer.so, libjavaplugin_oji.so, libmozsvgdec.la, and libmozsvgdec.so

I think it has to do with Java cause I was trying to use aol radio and it said my flashplayer wasn't installed
so I uninstalled sbopkg flash10 and reinstalled sbopkg flash10, but no dice

is Java connected to aol radio player?
thanks

No, he actually meant to enter about:plugins into Firefox's address bar.

OK, I did that and it says

Code:
Find more information about browser plugins at mozilla.org.
Help for installing plugins is available from plugindoc.mozdev.org.
Default Plugin

    File name: libnullplugin.so
    The default plugin handles plugin data for mimetypes and extensions that are not specified and facilitates downloading of new plugins.

MIME Type 	Description 	Suffixes 	Enabled
* 	All types 	.* 	No                 No

Well if all you have in your firefox plugins is the null plugin when you actually have them installed in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins then /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins is obviously not in your plugin path. Install the official Slackware firefox package. If you are on 3.0.10 you need to upgrade to mozilla-firefox-3.0.11-i686-1.tgz anyways.

The official Slackware firefox package uses a small patch that adds /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins to the plugin path. Without it, global plugins would be a pain because you would have to move them (from /usr/lib/firefox-*/plugins) with each firefox upgrade.
