Hi all,

I am trying to get www/linuxpluginwrapper and www/linux-flashplugin6
running with a native Mozilla (Firebird) on 5.1-RELEASE. I followed the
instrutions such as described in:


(echo "WITH_LIBMAP=YES" >> /etc/make.conf; add support for rtld-elf;
install devel/linuxthreads, www/linuxpluginwrapper and
www/linux-flashplugin6; edit /etc/libmap.conf; reboot).

After that, neither Mozilla 1.5 nor Mozilla Firebird will start:

Fatal IO error 78 (Function not implemented) on X server :0.0.

If I remove /etc/libmap.conf(*), Firebird will run as usual, with the
usual error:

LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library
[Shared object "" not found]

ml at earendil ~ $ cat /etc/libmap.conf
# /etc/libmap.conf for FreeBSD 5.x
# $Id: libmap.conf-FreeBSD5.x,v 1.2 2003/12/18 18:00:00 nork Exp $

# Flash6 with Mozilla/Firebird/Galeon/Epiphany
[/usr/local/lib/linux-flashplugin6/]                             pluginwrapper/                                                 pluginwrapper/

What did I get wrong?
