    Flash on 64 bit Linux


    Hi All ... So i have my nifty 64 bit x2 system complete with 64 bit Ubuntu. Sounds ultra spiffy, right up till you try to use the web.

    Using firefox, i have been totally stumped on getting flash to work. What i have come up with is that Adobe has *no* intention of releasing 64 bit flash for Linux.

    Great!

    The solution that has been gleaned from the forums is to run a 32 bit OS. Somehow this is an unsatisfatory solution at best. One of the reasons i run Linux is because of the ready availability to use all horsepower present.

    I am curious as to whether any forum readers have solved this problem.

    As an experiment i will start here - after 2 weeks w/o solution, i will post at other Linux forums.

    PS misc forum was the only one that really fit...

    I am not sure if Ubuntu provides x86 emulation libs/bins, maybe creating a 32bit chroot environment for the 32bits you need might help.

    Why use Flash when all you need is Gnash? It not only compiles on 64 bit architectures, but it's also free. I'm not sure if Ubuntu has it, but the latest version has been on Debian Unstable for a few months now (which is what Ubuntu is based on), you might want to check it out.

    How to compile/ install Gnash plug-in for Mozilla?

    gnash-0.7.2 just released, so downloaded, any success stories installing from source?
    Am just now setting up Suse 10.2 on core 2 duo x86_64, so hopefully can get 64 bit Firefox working as well, so little time...

    configure: error: /bin/sh ./config.sub x86_64-unknown-linux- failed

    Thanks.
