The installation on the Acer travelmate 4400 turion 64bid was quite
simple - just following instructions I found for installing flashplayer9
... it went without a problem

The problem is on 7.2 p4 if I'm not mistaken on i386 - as I said, I was
able to install flashplayer9 and all went well, but the something
happened and I don't know what... now it is impossible to install any
flashplayer... I have tried them all... now I have linux-f10 with
flashplayer10 installed and all I get is an error that flashplugin.so
cannot be started because a shared file "freetype.so.6" cannot be
found... It's there allright and is linked to fretype.so.6.13 or some
number like that... the fine name may not be correct as I don't have it
in front of me... but then, where is this shared file supposed to be?
The setups for the flashplayer are such a ridiculous mess that I can
only laugh...There are obviously conflicts or something screwing things
up from other programs like gimp or ImageMagic or gstreamers or some
such stuff...
