I'm using flash on 6-STABLE so I don't know if it works on 6.1R or not.
Make sure you linux_base ports and linuxpluginwrapper are up-to-date.
I'll assume your linux-flashplugin-7 is up-to-date. My version is
A directory listing of /usr/X11R6/lib/firefox/plugins might also help.
Here is what my listing looks like:
dwpc@ /etc# ll /usr/X11R6/lib/firefox/plugins
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 49 Jun 26 23:39 flashplayer.xpt -> /usr/X11R6/lib/linux-flashplugin7/flashplayer.xpt
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 51 Jun 26 23:40 libflashplayer.so -> /usr/X11R6/lib/linux-flashplugin7/libflashplayer.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 19216 Jun 19 17:45 libnullplugin.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 11632 Jun 19 17:45 libunixprintplugin.so
Also here is what my /etc/libmap.conf looks like:
# [ALPHA SUPPORT] Flash7 with Mozilla
BTW, there is a discussion concerning this on current@
which is very interesting and I recommend as good reading.
As that discussion implies and as the linuxpluginwrapper
states explicitly, this is unsupported.
Hope this helps. YMMV
