Well it was definitely a very dirty hack -- I needed to copy a lot of
libraries to my browsers plugin directory, including ld-linux.so.2,
libc.so.6 etc etc. I did get phoenix (my browser) to start and show
the flashplayer version 6 signature in about:plugins though, however
it just crashed on every flash site.

I have already reverted my plugins directory so unfortunately I'm not
able to show you the libraries I needed. It was more an act out of
desperation than something else however, I was a bit frustrated at
finally having flash 5 support, and then finding out that most flash
sites require flash 6 :(

Many thanks for all your hard work on the flashpluginwrapper though,
it works great for 'normal' sites that don't require flash 6! It has
made my browsing experience a lot better!
