Default Flash 10 in 64-bit F9: does it work?

The flash-plugin RPM I have has essentially no useful Requires:

kosh:2:~$ rpm -q flash-plugin
flash-plugin-10.0.12.36-release.i386
kosh:3:~$ rpm -q --requires flash-plugin
/bin/bash
/bin/sh
/bin/sh
/bin/sh
/bin/sh
glibc >= 2.4
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1

There is certainly no libcurl (or any other library) requirement; I
assume Adobe has (wrongly) disabled automatic requirement generation.
Here's what the actual plugin is linked against:

No libcurl in there, so I guess they must be dlopening it or something
like that.

Default Flash 10 in 64-bit F9: does it work?

The Adobe RPM does not require libcurl.so.4:

$ rpm -qp --requires flash-plugin-10.0.12.36-release.i386.rpm
/bin/bash
/bin/sh
/bin/sh
/bin/sh
/bin/sh
glibc >= 2.4
rpmlib(CompressedFileNames) <= 3.0.4-1
rpmlib(PayloadFilesHavePrefix) <= 4.0-1

But I'll try it without libflashsupport...

I did not use the Adobe RPM, but I am using my own RPM. Given the above,
I don't see how installing the Adobe RPM would pull in libcurl.i386.

It did when the first Flash 10 beta that required it came out. I guess
they removed this Requires on the final RPM. That's unfortunate.

No, I'm not making it up. I don't have a beta RPM anymore so I can't
pull out screenshots, but I remember it explicitly not allowing me to
install Flash 10 beta when I had no /usr/lib/libcurl.so.4 file. I had to
make a symlink to the .so.3 file and add --no-deps to the RPM install
command.

I'm pretty sure it was the other way around. Fedora ships libcurl.so.4,
not libcurl.so.3, and Flash 10 required the latter. I believe it will
now use either, and dlopen()s whichever one it finds.

Yeah.... Do a massive s/4/3/ on all of my e-mails. *annoyed grunt*

s/beta/rc/

And actually, it needed libcurl.so.3, while Fedora provided .so.4.

IIRC I read in the forum (Ubuntu?) where I found the libcurl suggestion
that those users had a problem because their distro had libcurl.so.3 and
that flash 10 needed libcurl.so.4. But I'll soon know because I'll try
to get flash 10 working on RHEL5, having libcurl.so.3...

Hi,

Did anyone manage to get flash 10 working on 64-bit F9? Note that
I didn't try on 32-bit yet, so I can't comment on that (yet). But
on 64-bit, the flash 10 plugin is loaded (using nspluginwrapper etc.)
and listed in Firefox. But as soon as I visit a flash page, it gives
error messages about not finding "soundwrapper" in my $PATH and it
doesn't display anything.


This explains how...

section 4.1.9.1
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/f10preview/en_US/What_is_the_Latest_on_the_Desktop.html

I wonder if there is a way to include this in the table of contents so
it is easier to find.
