    I have to say that I've done that, done what they said, but it didn't work.....

    Now... did any of you got it to work? How?

    After installing this is the error message i get when I start Mozilla:

    Code:
    LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /usr/share/MozillaFirebird/plugins/libflashplayer.so [libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory]

    looks like you're missing the libstdc++ package.. either that or you're missing the compat-libstdc++ package... check for those and see if that fixes it..

    i have
    /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5.0.5
    /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.5

    I supose that means i have the libstdc++ package.

    but i don't have the compat-libstdc++ package, and can't find a rpm for Mandrake 9.2 to install....
    I did find one for RedHat9, i'll try it.

    you might need to see if there is a newer version of libstdc++ available since it looks like you have v5.x.x and it needs 6.x.x

    There's a difference - the flash plugin uses an older (obsolete) version of libstdc++. You will need to find the file called libstd++-libc6.2-2.so.3. libstd++.so.5 will not do; it's not the same.

    Well, it's working really nice...
    All i did was install the compat-libstdc++ package for RedHat9.
    I hasn't given me any trouble.... for now.
