I have followed all of the instructions for patching the src (from above), and firefox still crashes with the error: /libexec/ld-elf.so.1: /usr/local/lib/pluginwrapper/flash7.so: Undefined symbol "_dlsym" when a flash page is loaded. What have I missed?


I'm using flash on 6-STABLE so I don't know if it works on 6.1R or not.

Make sure you linux_base ports and linuxpluginwrapper are up-to-date.
I'll assume your linux-flashplugin-7 is up-to-date.  My version is

A directory listing of /usr/X11R6/lib/firefox/plugins might also help.
Here is what my listing looks like:

dwpc@ /etc# ll /usr/X11R6/lib/firefox/plugins
total 32
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel     49 Jun 26 23:39 flashplayer.xpt -> 
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel     51 Jun 26 23:40 libflashplayer.so -> 
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  19216 Jun 19 17:45 libnullplugin.so
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  11632 Jun 19 17:45 libunixprintplugin.so

Also here is what my /etc/libmap.conf looks like:

# [ALPHA SUPPORT] Flash7 with Mozilla
libpthread.so.0     libpthread.so.2
libdl.so.2      pluginwrapper/flash7.so
libz.so.1     libz.so.3
libm.so.6     libm.so.4
libc.so.6     pluginwrapper/flash7.so

BTW, there is a discussion concerning this on current@
which is very interesting and I recommend as good reading.
As that discussion implies and as the linuxpluginwrapper
states explicitly, this is unsupported.

Hope this helps. YMMV

I was able to get it to work by following different instructions on patching the /usr/src tree.

# cd /usr/src
# fetch http://people.FreeBSD.org/~nork/rtld_dlsym_hack.diff <http://people.FreeBSD.org/%7Enork/rtld_dlsym_hack.diff>
# patch < rtld_dlsym_hack.diff
# cd libexec/rtld-elf/
# make clean
# make obj
# make depend
# make
# make install

worked like a charm ;o)
