Hello Beto,

Thank you for the replay,
Would you please kindly tell me where is the instruction written on which web? for future

You wrote that i should "add" the line /usr/X11R6/lib/linux-flashplugin6 to
/usr/X11R6/lib/firefox/run-mozilla.sh take a note that its linux-flashplugin7 not 6
6 is not supported anymore. is it correct then?

Whats the way to add the line, i have done the following is it correct ?

Or it should be only MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH=/usr/X11R6/lib/linux-flashplugin7    ??

Third and last:
After i did the past steps i tried to run firefox and i opened a page that contain flash
 then firefox crushed with an error
/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: /usr/local/lib/pluginwrapper/flash7.so: undefined symbol "_dlsym"

 So i proced to your last step and I did
 # cd /usr/src
 # patch < rtld_dlsym_hack.diff
 # cd libexec/rtld-elf
 # make rtld

 Till here everything was Ok! when i tried to do "make install"
 it gave me an error..
 # make install
chflags noschg /usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1
install -s -o root -g wheel -m 555  -C -b -fschg -S ld-elf.so.1 /libexec
install: ld-elf.so.1: No such file or directory
*** Error code 71

Stop in /usr/src/libexec/rtld-elf.

Sorry for the long email, wish i got the help.
And thank you.

from someone else's kind instructions, which worked great for me:

- modify your libmap.conf , following what is shown in
what  /usr/local/share/examples/linuxpluginwrapper/libmap.conf-FreeBSD6

- Finally edit /usr/X11R6/lib/firefox/run-mozilla.sh and add
 /usr/X11R6/lib/linux-flashplugin6 to MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH
 (near the end of the script) (colon-separated path components)

- path your kernel:
Please get and apply a dlsym(3) hook patch (apply in /usr/src ; then cd
libexec/rtld-elf and do make rtld)
http://people.FreeBSD.org/~nork/rtld_dlsym_hack.diff This provides _dlsym(3) function to fix dynamic-link error "can't find gtk_major_version" ad-hoc-ly.

$cd /usr/src
$fetch http://people.FreeBSD.org/~nork/rtld_dlsym_hack.diff
$patch < rtld_dlsym_hack.diff
$ cd libexec/rtld-elf
$sudo make rtld
$ sudo make install
