installing flash player on gnu/linux
 
I've been trying to get the flash player plugin to work on my system for a few days and I finally figured out what was wrong. The problem was the plugin couldn't find libz.

Code:

$ ldd .mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
        linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xffffe000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /usr/glibc2/lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x402cc000)
        libdl.so.2 => /usr/glibc2/lib/libdl.so.2 (0x4031f000)
        libz.so.1 => not found
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x40323000)
        libXext.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6 (0x403ea000)
        libXt.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXt.so.6 (0x403f8000)
        libXmu.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXmu.so.6 (0x40449000)
        libm.so.6 => /usr/glibc2/lib/libm.so.6 (0x4045f000)
        libc.so.6 => /usr/glibc2/lib/libc.so.6 (0x40483000)
        /usr/glibc2/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x80000000)
        libSM.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libSM.so.6 (0x40599000)
        libICE.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libICE.so.6 (0x405a2000)

I knew I had installed libz a while ago, but I went back to check the installation and noticed that it doesn't make shared libraries by default. There's a --shared flag. Teach me not to read the readme.

So once the lib was installed, I reloaded atomfilms.com and all my cool animations came back.

Not really a question, just FYI.
