    Can't install flash in PureDyne (Too many levels of symbolic links)

    I'm trying to install flash 11.2 in the 64 bit version ofPureDyne. I was able to unpack the tar.gz file and put all of the files in their appropriate folders except for
    which needs to go in the
    folder. Every time I try to copy said file to said folder, I get the following error message:
    cp: cannot stat './': Too many levels of symbolic links
    What the heck am I doing wrong and how do I get around this? Why is something that I feel should be simple becoming overwhelmingly complicated

    I am not familiar with your distro but when I want to manually install file

    $ locate
    That tells me to put it into /usr/lib/flashplugin-nonfree directory.
    I refuse to let fear and fear of others rule my life. It puts my humanity at risk.

    I tried
    $ locate
    and got a
    command not found

    YouTube videos appear to be working; I tried playing a facebook game and just got a white screen which could be due to having an old version of firefox (I've had a hard time trying to update that as well), Except something has gone wrong with my sound. I've turned everything I'm allowed to in alsamixer all the way up and I still have to turn my speakers all the way up in order to hear anything. For some reason, there is no bar to adjust for "headphones" and that can only be set to 0 or mute. I didn't notice this problem until after I tried to install flash. It seems to me like something is missing or damaged and I have no idea what or how to fix it.
