What browser are you using? Where is the flash plugin located? There's Kpackagekit available here. As for checking system temperature, there's lm_sensors.

I should've added this; there is no native 64 bit flash plugin for browsers. You could use the 32-bit version of the browser of your choice and then install the flash plugin,. This usually goes into /usr/lib{64}/mozilla/plugins.

Do you mean the one utilising the nspluginwrapper? Yes, it has worked well in the past, but I don't believe it's officially available anymore. Also, many sites complain about an updated version of flash not being available, so I think using the 32-bit plugin is the more practical choice.

Just remember that that version is full of security holes that haven't been and never will be addressed as Adobe discontinued support on it. If you choose to run it, you're choosing to take a risk.

Adobe are currently at 'laughing-stock' status with me. They're going to have to do some serious sort of turn-around with regard to security/quality before I'll let any of their software back on my box.


edit: And almost exactly on queue:

The prosecution rests.

I'll take the risk rather than do with out being able to watch flash videos
I have no idea how well gnash works because I can't find all of the dependencies for it
half the URLs in the README for it no longer exist 75% of the libraries it depends on eather
can't be found or built all I ever got from tiring to build it were undefined function errors even when the configure script runs successfully
to top it all off the maintainers simply do not reply to emails asking " where do I find the dependencies for gnash "
nspluginwapper only works IF the flash player is the one and only plugein you have

I saw that Eric Hameleers had a slackbuild for an older version of gnash. I was curious if it would work for version 0.8.8 as I have read that it works quite well. I have a fresh install of Slackware 64 now running current and I chose not to make it multilib. I miss flash a little, but I would use gnash if I can get that to work.

There is a package for gnash in the salix repository for 64 bit here. They also have a dependency file. Using slapt-get or gslapt with salix repositories you should be able to download all the dependencies since it does dependency checking. I've never used it or tried it.

I have a copy as well (of the actual package provided by Adobe, as well as just the raw .so file). However, I am wary of uploading it somewhere as it would constitute distribution which I am sure is against the terms of their license. I have tried to find a working link from Adobe's own site but it appears the package has been pulled completely, unless I am mistaken. There is a massive security hole in 10.0_r45 (32-bit and 64-bit), and another in the latest 10.1 (for 32-bit) that is being actively exploited in Windows. Although I am currently running 10.0_r45 on Slackware64-13.0, it would probably be in your best interest to go multilib and use a 32-bit Firefox with the latest flash (using noscript and/or FlashBlock) and then update Flash quickly when a patched version is released. At this point I sadly have doubt that any 64-bit Flash update will be released in the near future, especially given the problems with their (higher priority) 32-bit driver.

Alien Bob's post might be interesting to try when he gets it sorted out, but I'm not hopeful that gnash or LightSpark are suitable Adobe Flash replacements.

Adobe Flash Player "Square"

This might be worth checking out:

http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/

I haven't tested it yet (it was just released today), but to quote the Adobe website:

Quote:
Adobe® Flash® Player "Square" is a preview release that enables native 64-bit support on Linux, Mac OS, and Windows operating systems, as well as enhanced support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 beta.
I downloaded/extracted the tar.gz file for 64bit linux and ended up with a libflashplayer.so file, so it shouldn't matter what distro you've got.

As someone who'd rather not go multilib, I am happy to see this from Adobe.

I'm planning on trying it out (hopefully before the weekend) and I'll report back.

Well you made me eat my words fairly quickly.

[edit] Just tried it out and it seems to work well. I can't speak to the stability since I *just* tried it (the old Flash plugin was 100% stable for me, and hopefully this one will continue to be). It plays 1080p fullscreen video from YouTube perfectly and it played a flash game without any trouble. [/edit]
