Hi questions@
cc Dmitry Marakasov <amdmi3 at amdmi3.ru> ( of graphics/gnash/Makefile )

On 8.2-RELEASE amd64 I ran make install on both
But I see no hint what to read, hot to get firefox to call gnash.
I would like to view a flash eg from
{within firefox|externaly}.
	Clicking on
		Tools -> Add-ons - Plugins
	Gnash is listed, 
	On xterm calling firefox3 I just get a normal static page,
	man gnash says what to do from CLI,
	But I'm not clear what the URL is, of the flash to save to file
Any ideas ?

PS I also get, though this may not be relevant:
	LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library \
	/ad4s1/usr1/home/jhs/.mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so \
	[/ad4s1/usr1/home/jhs/.mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so: \
	unsupported file layout]

file /ad4s1/usr1/home/jhs/.mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so
	/ad4s1/usr1/home/jhs/.mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so: ELF 32-bit \
	 LSB shared object, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, \

ls -l /ad4s1/usr1/home/jhs/.mozilla/plugins/nppdf.so
	-rwxr-xr-x  1 jhs  staff  179552 Sep  5 01:25 \

PS I am rebuilding firefox, in case some autoconfig might auto detect
