    Debug flash?

    Hi Guys,

    I am trying to get flash to use the VDPAU lib to enable gpu acceleration. I have done this both in Ubuntu 32bit and Fedora 32bit but am still trying to figure out 64bit fedora. I have installed 32bit flash and put it in a 64 bit wrapper so that firefox can use it.

    When I launch firefox from the terminal and go onto youtube I get the following message:

    "Failed to open VDPAU backend cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

    How can I find out the full path of the directory/file that the program is looking for? Is there some sort of way to debug the flash program and find out what it is looking for? I assume once I find that out I can copy the file to that location.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Why not use the (now available) 64-bit flash plugin?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
