I've been struggling to get a handle on the FreeBSD system.  Making good

linuxpluginwrapper approach, and it didn't work.

It made me recall, in reading up on FreeBSD, I did see where somebody
installed both Firefox and Linx-firefox.

So before I do battle with this Linux wrapper approach, I wondered if I
would be better off simply installing the Linux-firefox?

Is that easier?  More likely to work?

There is now:
cd /usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-f7 ; make install clean
which you should use instead -- its newer :)

Wow, what great timing, I was just starting to look about for a browser to give me flash. Let me ask this again, both for my own use, and for those folks (like me) who have googled this without success so far: if I wanted, as far as possible, to stay with FreeBSD-native apps (but willing to do whatever it takes, IF its the only way to success) how does someone get to having a browser run on FreeBSD, with the main requirement, that it run Flash.

Oh. One more qualification (I can get a bit picky, I guess). I notice that there's a port for flashplugin9, not just 7. Is there ANY setup that allows flash9, not just flash7? The only limitation I keep active is, I don't run MS software. No Windows. I suppose, if it's the best way, I could even choose Wine (does this make me a Wino?)

'Preciate this, I'm anxious to get started. If I'm forced to it, I have a great amount of disk, I would give as much disk as it needs, to get this, I just need to overcome old prejudices over using too much disk. I guess I can't get used to having gigabytes, not megabytes, to play with.
