Snap from the FreeBSD handbook:
Install the www/linuxpluginwrapper port. This port requires
emulators/linux_base which is a large port. Follow the instructions
displayed by the port to set up your /etc/libmap.conf correctly! Example
configurations are installed
into /usr/local/share/examples/linuxpluginwrapper/ directory.
The next step is to install the www/linux-flashplugin7 port. Once the
plugin is installed, start your browser, enter about:plugins in the
location bar and press Enter. A list should appear with all the
currently available plugins.
If the Flash plugin is not listed, this is, most of time, caused by a
missing symlink. As root, run the following commands:
# ln -s /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so \
# ln -s /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-flashplugin/flashplayer.xpt \
If you restart your browser the plugin should now appears in the
previously mentioned list.
Note: The linuxpluginwrapper only works on the i386™ system
You can also try out GNUs flashplayer wich you can install
from the ports collection. /usr/ports/graphics/gnash
You can read about it here:
I myself run gnash for the moment. It's in Alpha version
so it's far from perfect, but I'm sure it will evolve in
a good way and I don't have to emulate linux.
