    Firefox and flashplugin problems


    Howdy folx.

    I've downloaded firefox and I'm a happy user ....
    Then I run into troubles getting plugins to work.
    I've downloaded the installer and ran the installer..
    It did install the various files in the plugin directory...
    But firefox is unable to find new plugins...

    Anyone suggestions of how to solve this prob ?
    It works using Windos... But I don't wanna switch to that...

    [martijnl@illith plugins]$ ls -la
    total 1472
    drwxrwsr-x 2 root users 4096 Mar 19 12:22 .
    drwxrwsr-x 10 root root 4096 Feb 8 04:54 ..
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root users 856 Mar 19 12:22 flashplayer.xpt
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root users 1470464 Mar 19 12:22 libflashplayer.so
    -rwxrwxr-x 1 root users 18848 Feb 8 04:54 libnullplugin.so
    [martijnl@illith plugins]$
    in other words: HELP..


    oooh, I allready installed the backward compatibility rpm for RH7...
    Didn't work either.

    Did you check this link out? It is the official mirror for swf linux installers (or so they say).
