    Remove flash9, install libcurl3 and flash10. You can find the beta of flash10 at adobe's website and libcurl3 should be in the repositories.

    Thank you. Did not know there was a version 10 beta.

    Removed libflashplayer.so from /usr/lib/Browser_Plugins.

    Downloaded Adobe Flash 10 beta as an RPM. Installation failed looking for libcurl3; I have libcurl4. libcurl3 is not in the repositories.

    Downloaded tarball of Adobe Flash 10 beta. Copied libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/Browswer_Plugins. Firefox shows no flash plugin now.

    Created symbolic link: ln -s libcurl.so.4.0.1 libcurl.so.3

    Flash 10 shows as a plugin.

    Firefox crashes on some flash sites with the following error:

    /usr/bin/firefox: line 123: 579 Segmentation fault $MOZ_PROGRAM "$@"

    Uninstalled Firefox.

    Installed stand-alone version.

    Firefox will not run at all.

    This is the sort of thing that keeps people from using Linux.

    Instead of creating the symbolic link, try installing the actual curl3 package.

    Reinstalled Firefox 3.0.1 through Yast.

    Installed libcurl3 from 1-click install.

    Loaded Oprah.com - Live Your Best Life.

    Received error:

    line 126: 6942 Segmentation fault $MOZ_PROGRAM "$@"

    Firefox still crashing on flash content.

    Installed Opera from Yast.

    Flash content works.

    Oprah.com does not display flash content.

    Opra does not crash, however.

    I have no idea. Works for me. I'm using 64bit openSUSE 11.0 with
    firefox 3.0.1... HOWEVER, I am using 32bit firefox and NOT the 64bit
    one. I find flash can be unstable on almost any site under 64bit
    firefox. I haven't had any issue using 32bit firefox.

    My flash is somewhat of a custom one off though... but regular flash
    works too... my flash has support for alternative sound sources for
    network sound via esound (so I can NX into my desktop and hear the
    audio from flash).
