I have Mandirva Springs 64 bit OS. Adobe-Flash is not working?
I recently installed Mandriva-springs 2010.1 64 bit os. Inspite of putting the flash player plugin so in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugin folder it does not work. There is no folder for plugin in /usr/lib/mozilla/. How ever all other plugins are working from the folder /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugin
At present Adobe does not have a 64bit plugin for Flash, there are 2 methods I know of to get around this: 1) Using the nswrapper utility where it uses a translation layer between the 32bit & 64bit environments.
2) You can use Gnash which is provided with Mandriva dvd/cd's. For this I would suggest to go to http://easyurpmi.zarb.org and use the utility to update your repository listings. I find more advantageous to deselect any of the cd references in the media listing. Gets rid of the constant requests for the dvd/cd media. Once you have clicked on the official medias link it will prompt for you to run the gurpmi utility, you say yes/ok. It will then prompt for the SU password. It may take a while if you are on a slow connection but worthwhile. Once the process for the official medias has completed you should see the Ok for complete, you can then click the plf repositories update button let that complete and let it do it's thing. Once everything has completed you can then go into your 'Install & Remove Software' and you should see a lot more options & the best part about it is that any dependencies it will mark for installation. How is that?!? On the search line type flash or gnash. See what comes up! I think you know the process now.
Have fun! Regards,
