from someone else's kind instructions, which worked great for me:
- modify your libmap.conf , following what is shown in
- Finally edit /usr/X11R6/lib/firefox/run-mozilla.sh and add
/usr/X11R6/lib/linux-flashplugin6 to MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH
(near the end of the script) (colon-separated path components)
- path your kernel:
Please get and apply a dlsym(3) hook patch (apply in /usr/src ; then cd
libexec/rtld-elf and do make rtld)
http://people.FreeBSD.org/~nork/rtld_dlsym_hack.diff This provides _dlsym(3)
function to fix dynamic-link error "can't find gtk_major_version" ad-hoc-ly.
$patch < rtld_dlsym_hack.diff
$ cd libexec/rtld-elf
$sudo make rtld
$ sudo make install
