In all honesty, linux-flash has not been really stable, even on Linux,
since flash7. That said, I have had good results with flash9 and
nspluginwrapper. I also use linux_base-f8 and carefully updated all of
my linux emulation mode ports to the f8 version (when available). I
think that covers all of them EXCEPT linux-nvu and the closed source
third-party apps like linux-realplayer and linux-flashplugin9. Also, be
sure to add the define lines to /etc/make.conf as described in the
installation of linux_base-f8.
# portversion | grep linux-
then, for each item:
portupgrade -o /usr/ports/DIR/linux-f8-PORT/ linux-PORT
Where DIR is the ports directory and PORT is the pat of the port name
following 'linux-'. Note that you really need to do these in dependency
tree order or you will get install errors. Use 'portupgrade -fn linux-\*'
to get the order.
Log into the system under your normal account (not root) and run
nspluginwrapper to install the plugins that need to be wrapped.
nspluginwrapper -i /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so
nspluginwrapper -i /usr/local/lib/linux-mozilla/plugins/nphelix.so
