Last night, I posted that the configuration for Flash7 with CURRENT that
someone kindly posted worked for me with CURRENT, but not for 6.0BETA.

This morning on my workstation at work, I tried again, just using the
default libmap.conf from linuxpluginwrapper's /usr/share/examples.

I cd'd to /usr/X11R6/lib/browser_plugins (heh, that's much easier to do,
with tab completion, than to type) removed the symlinks pointing to
/usr/X11R6/lib/linux-flashplugin6, replaced them with symlinks to
linux-flashplugin7, and simply changed the 6's in my default libmap.conf
to 7.

In other words, again, I used the default example installed by
linuxpluginwrapper.  The default reads

 Flash6 with Mozilla/Firebird/Galeon/Epiphany/Konqueror
[/usr/X11R6/lib/linux-flashplugin6/]			pluginwrapper/			pluginwrapper/			pluginwrapper/

I changed that to

# Flash7 with Mozilla/Firebird/Galeon/Epiphany/Konqueror
[/usr/X11R6/lib/linux-flashplugin7/]			 pluginwrapper/			pluginwrapper/			pluginwrapper/

This got flash7 working on my 6.0BETA4 box with firefox. 

Thanks again to the person who posted his libmap.conf for CURRENT which
made me want to get flash7 working.  

Flash7 still freezes on some sites with native firefox, but works a
treat with linux-firefox (again, I installed that one from source, not
ports--I think it was Martin C. who inspired me to do that, so if he's
on this list, thanks)
