I just got Flash working on FreeBSD 4.8 RELEASE, so I hope this helps
you with 5.1.
First off, I'm running linux-opera from the ports. Here is the output
from pkg_info | grep opera: linux-opera-7.11.20030515_2.
Second, I installed the port for Flash, the output from pkg_inf | grep
flash is: linux-flashplugin-6.0r79 The official Macromedia Flash Player
for Linux Mozilla and
I downloaded the flash port here:
Once the Flash player is installed, I went to my Opera plugins directory
located at: /usr/X11R6/share/opera/plugins
I then ran the following commands:
ln -s /usr/local/lib/linux-flashplugin6/flashplayer.xpt
ln -s /usr/local/lib/linux-flashplugin6/libflashplayer.so
Then I started opera and all was happy.
I hope this helps you,
