HI !

I tested the process of installing firefox/opera and flash plugin. 
Everything run on my system FreeBSD 8, even though I did not stress 
browser & plugin.

Here's all the step that I took to make the flash plugin work for 
firefox and opera (basically I followed the handbook).

--- Installed /usr/ports/emulators/linux_base-f10

--- kldload linux

--- mount linprocfs

--- installed /usr/ports/www/linux-f10-flashplugin10/

(--- installed /usr/ports/www/nspluginwrapper)
(--- ln -s /usr/local/lib/npapi/linux-f10-flashplugin/libflashplayer.so 
/usr/local/lib/browser_plugins/ )
(--- as normal user I executed nspluginwrapper ... etc)

--- installed ___NATIVE FREEBSD version___ of Opera [/usr/ports/www/opera]

--- installed /usr/ports/www/opera-linuxplugins/.
