heads up: Adobe now has full 64-bit Flash support
 
Adobe now has full 64-bit Flash support, including a 64-bit repo. Just go to
http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ , select "YUM for Linux (YUM)", download and
install adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm, and install flash-plugin from the
repo. Someone needs to edit https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Flash (meaning taking
an axe to it). In particular, I don't know if there's any reason for anyone to
use the 32-bit wrapped plugin anymore.

But I wonder: Do you still need to fix the calls to memcpy to call memmove instead?

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=638477

(Hopefully it is fixed in the one in the new repo).

I'm pretty sure they fixed that already in an earlier version, but someone
should test the new version to make sure it didn't come back.

Hey! It seems to be working. I just installed from the repo
and tried the link in that bug, and the sound no longer has
the horrible glitches it used to have.

I suppose it should be kept there as a backup, so people can switch to it in
case a bug appears that only affects the 64-bit plugin.

Too bad they botched the yum repo file and wired it for 64-bit only.
Folks with a mixture of 32-bit and 64-bit systems now have to be careful
to not rsync that file across all their machines. Much better would be
to use "$basearch" instead of the "x86_64" or "i386". Folks might want
to use this as their adobe flash repo file:

/etc/yum.repos.d/adobe-linux.repo:
[adobe-linux]
name=Adobe Systems Incorporated
baseurl=http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux

You might want both 32 and 64 bit repos right now; if you need Acrobat
Reader, that's still 32 bit only (and not in their 64 bit repo).

And yes, before somebody says "use <foo> instead", there are still
things that acroread does (that are required) that AFAIK the Open Source
PDF readers don't do (such as fill out tax forms with scripted
calculations).
