Adobe flash plugin "invalid" after pluginreg.dat rebuild - why?
Just loaded Fedora 16 and it comes with FireFox7. Followed all of the instructions to download Adobe Flash, loaded the .so into the plugin directory, but the plugin did not appear.
Followed the Troubleshooting instructions and deleted the pluginreg.dat and then restarted FF.
Looked at the newly created pluginreg.dat and found this:
[INVALID] /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so:$ 1321705544000:$
Obviously, the flash plugin is still not recognized.
Noted that all of the .so libraries in the plugin directory had 755 mode, changed the libflashplayer.so to the same permissions. No effect.
Where to now?
Please ignore. This was caused by an old version of the Flash player. When I downloaded the current stuff, it all seems to work now.Read this answer in context 👍 0
