With all this talk about FLASH, I found something out by trial and

can get the FLASH player working in their brower:


sysctl compat.linux.osrelease=2.6.20

I am using 8-current (amd64) and found all I needed to do was install
www/linux-flashplugin7 then do a nspluginwrapper -v -a -i and flash
works fine (as far I can tell)...   does this add any functionality I
am not aware of?  (namely some sites seem to partially load like the
graphs at [the easiest way to test this is go to the
site in my signature then click on the 3rd icon at the bottom and then
click on graphs])
Better yet, add this to your /etc/sysctl.conf file and reboot:

NOTE: I just picked 2.6.20 kinda at random... seems like that is
the linux kernel number (which I know nothing about) for the Fedora
7 release.  Oh, and I installed Fedora 7 instead of the default
Fedora Core 4 on my desktop.

Why does the linux emulation pick 2.4.2 as the kernel version
number to report (by default) and not 2.6.11 (their kernel version
shipped with Fedora 4)?  Seems like the ports should and linux
module should be updated...

Thank You!

I tried getting flash to work in FreeBSD so many times and failed.
It wasn't a big deal but it was annoying to have to boot into another system if there is content I needed to see that happens to be flash.

I'm running FreeBSD 7 Beta4.

I just did what you said:
cd /usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin7
make config-recursive install clean
nspluginwrapper -v -a -i

After that a flash content was playing in firefox.
Unfortunately my AudigyLS soundcard only works with oss, which is having some problems now, so I was not able to verify that sound works well.

By the way, I had some problems installing flash7 from ports a few days ago.
It didn't like the size of the file and would fail even if you downloaded from Adobe and copied to ports/disfiles. I later did a 'portsnap fetch update' that must have gotten updated makefiles and fixed that problems. Anybody else with that issue should try updating the ports collection.
