    Angry Suse 11.1 npviewer

    Using Suse 11.1 KDE3.5 64bit and Firefox causes the CPU to get hot and cause cooling. Output from top
    --------------------
    0 73164 21m 8404 R 122%CPU 2.2% Memory 1:45.31 npviewer.bin
    --------------------
    If I close firefox, npviewer.bin - closes and the problem solved.

    I do not understand why npviewer that uses little CPU when used by Firefox usually, begins to run away. If i close the offending window the CPU usage goes down [on npviewer]. This morning it was Ebay that caused the fans to run!

    There does seem to be a link to the sound - alsa
    Any ideas?

    This does not seem to happen in opera or Konquerer

    Thanks

    I think it's because you are _64 and you use a plugin (nspluginwrapper) to run 32 bit flash.

    A solution might be to try the _64 flash
    There is a guide here:
    Flash Player 10 on 11.1 - Page 3 - openSUSE Forums

    Another alternative is installing 32 bit FF (But I wouldn't)
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    Hi

    I have erased the flashplayer and downloaded the new, thus ended up with 2 files

    libflashplayer.so and flashplayer-installer

    because of permissions Linux will not let me copy them to

    3. Extract the plugin, and place a copy of it in /usr/lib64/browser-plugins

    Can you advise? Thanks

    In YAST I have just found

    swfdec - A Free Flash Player
    swfdec is a free flash player. It is usually embedded into a browser via the swfdec-mozilla package for instance.

    Does this sound any good?

    Hi

    I can get into root by su

    can you let me know the syntax for these two files. I tried just copying them but nothing happened in Firefox - check with it being added on?

    Thanks

    If you use Dolphin wit the Terminal Panel you might find this easier because you can navigate to where the file is that you downloaded - Now in the terminal type su
    then your password
    Now do this:
    Code:
    cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib64/browser-plugins
