I'm currently running 6.2-STABLE, firefox-,1,
linux-flashplugin-7.0r69 and linuxpluginwrapper-20051113_7 and flash
plugin works well on most of the websites I've been.

Here's the relevant part of my /etc/libmap.conf
libpthread.so.0         libpthread.so.2
libdl.so.2        pluginwrapper/flash7.so
libz.so.1         libz.so.3
libm.so.6         libm.so.4
libc.so.6         pluginwrapper/flash7.so

Don't forget to add the symbolic links required:

# cd /usr/local/lib/browser_plugins
# ln -s /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin/flashplayer.xpt .
# ln -s /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so .

Hope this helps,
