6.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 6.1

I have these files in


$ pwd
/usr/local/lib/firefox/plugins
$ ls -lrt
total 2132
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  2158864 Oct 27 16:42 libflashplayer.so
-r--r--r--  1 root  wheel      856 Oct 27 16:42 flashplayer.xpt
drwxr-xr-x  2 500   100        512 Dec  4 19:09 install_flash_player_7_linux
$


I need to try  the Warren's method  to see if that is going to help me,
first of all I need to read man portupgrade to perform the upgrade from 6.1to
6.2 , as i am new into this freebsd world.

Thanks for your input

Dak

or, look in  /usr/local/lib/firefox/plugins/ and make sure the plugin or a
symlink exists.
