http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer

all i had to do to get it working was put the flashplayer.xpt file in the /usr/lib/firefox/components directory and the libflashplayer.so file in the /usr/lib/firefox/plugins directory... but i'm on firefox - on mozilla it's likely you just need to copy both files to your plugins directory... personally, i find it better to copy the files manually than to use the installer...

absolutely.one hundred percent agree with your view,your opinion.
i just llike to configure the system.
just copy the files manually to the plugins directory.

haha.--------- DIY do it yourself.


but one problem,
the website link you give me,my dear friend,
is not the linux or bsd flash pluins files.

what does you want to tell me ,my dear friends????????????

that's weird, AFAIK the webpage will detect which OS you are using and send you to the respective download page... hmmm... maybe it only detects windows and linux... anyways, here's the direct link to the solaris page:

http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/...sion=Netscape4

make sure you read the instructions cuz they might be a little different than linux...

what i meant was that the way to install the flash plugin on solaris might be a little different than the way it is on linux... but i have no idea, maybe it's the same, i just haven't read the installation instructions for the solaris version...

anyways, did you get it working already??

Installing the flash player on Solaris is not that difficult, it's a four steps process:

- download the plugin from the http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer location, using the target browser on the target O/S (i.e. Solaris).

- untar the retrieved file:
Code:
gunzip < flash_player_7_solaris_x86_r53.tar.gz | tar xvf -
- run the installer or just copy libflashplayer.so and flashplayer.xpt to either the global or your private plugin directory
Code:
# cd install_flash_player_7_solaris
# cp libflashplayer.so flashplayer.xpt ~/.mozilla/plugins
- restart your browser on the about:plugins pseudo URL, it should show the shockwave flash plugin is there.

the solaris .tar.gz file ,to want to unzip it, it will be two steps ,this point is really different from the linux package.

and the other steps like linux package installing.
do you think so,my friend??
