I have purchased a Alix.3C3 LX800 board.
It is running iMedia Alix Linux 6.0.4 which I am lead to believe is a cut down version of Fedora.
Is this correct? I'm fairly new to Linux and don't quite grasp all the distros yet.
I am attempting to upgrade Shockwave Flash from 9 9.0 r124 to 10.0 r22 in Firefox 3.0 using this guide:
I completed these steps:
- Closed Firefox 3.0.
- Downloaded the 'libflashplayer.so' file from Adobe's site.
- Created a new directory called 'plugins' in '~/.mozilla' (Directory was not there originally. I created the directory using Thunar 0.9.0 Filemanager and chmod'd it to 777 using aterm)
-Copied the libflashplayer.so to ~/.mozilla.
- Opened Firefox > Addons > Plugins
- Disabled Shockwave Flash 9.0 r124
- Ensured Shockwave Flash 10.0 r22 was enabled
- Restarted Firefox
- Browsed to Youtube, no video display (like Flash not installed)
- Restarted OS, tried again, same result.
- Enabled Flash 9.0, disabled 10.0, tested, Works !!! (Though very jumpy and not watchable)
- Searched far and wide, got frustrated, angry, ready to give up !!!!
- Came to Expert Exchange
Can anyone shed some light as to why Firefox won't use the Flash 10 plugin?
The reason I am upgrading is because of video performance issues with Flash 9.
I have also tried using ./flashplayer-installer.sh
script from aterm but get the error:
Error: Your glibc library is older than 2.3. Please update your library.
I am certain I am running version 2.6.X or higher as I remember seeing a folder relating to glibc called 2.6.0. I can't check as 'rpm -man' returns "command not found'. Is there another way to check as I don't think RPM is supported (RedHat only???) I am lost here....
