I am using 8-current (amd64) and found all I needed to do was install
www/linux-flashplugin7 then do a nspluginwrapper -v -a -i and flash
works fine (as far I can tell)... does this add any functionality I
am not aware of? (namely some sites seem to partially load like the
graphs at whos.among.us [the easiest way to test this is go to the
site in my signature then click on the 3rd icon at the bottom and then
click on graphs])
