I have the same problem on 64-bit Slackware on that site. I have to assume that the latest version available for 64-bit Linux, or possibly *any* version for 64-bit Linux, is being actively rejected (unless it really doesn't work). Some sites like to lock you out if they're not sure your version of software will work. Of course it is probable that I am incorrect, but the only thing you can try is regressing to former 64-bit flash plugins (most of which have massive security holes), or go multilib or find a 32-bit install (VMs work well) that will grant you access.

This is all based on the unproven theory that the 64-bit plugin is at fault here...

I am having the same problem. I never thought Linux would come between me and a pair of Yankees tickets.

Anyway, just as the OP I can play flash videos and just about everything else fine, but does not work. I am using the 64-bit plugin, and perhaps I'll try out the 32 bit one as well.

I am just posting to see if anyone has any updates.

BTW, I didn't realize this was in a Slackware forum. This problem appears to not be distro-specific as I am experiencing the same issue with Fedora 14 x64.
