Hi,

A bbc news item reports that Adobe has released an emergency update to 
the flash player. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-26045740 . I 
haven't found any other information however there is a version bump on 
Adobe's download page to linux-f10-flashplugin-11.2r202.336.

I downloaded install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz and untarred it then:

# cd /usr/ports/www/linux-f10-flashplugin11/
# make extract
# cp -v ~chrisw/temp/flashplugin/libflashplayer.so 
/usr/ports/www/linux-f10-flashplugin11/work/
# cp -v ~chrisw/temp/flashplugin/readme.txt 
/usr/ports/www/linux-f10-flashplugin11/work/
  cp -v ~chrisw/temp/flashplugin/usr/lib/kde4/kcm_adobe_flash_player.so 
/usr/ports/www/linux-f10-flashplugin11/work/usr/lib/kde4/kcm_adobe_flash_player.so
# pkg delete linux-f10-flashplugin-11.2r202.335
# vi Makefile
[ change version number to 336 ]
# make install
# pkg info -x flash
linux-f10-flashplugin-11.2r202.336

And it seems to be working in firefox and opera.

I can't find any other information about this so called emergency 
update, is the fact that there is a new version sufficient to request an 
update to the port?

thanks

Chris
