    Default Adobe Flash Player 10 Officially Released

    Phoronix: Adobe Flash Player 10 Officially Released

    Yesterday the Free Software Foundation released a beta update for Gnash, the Flash Player that's written by the community and is comprised of all open-source code, but today Adobe has updated its official Flash Player. Adobe's Flash Player 10 has been officially released for all supported platforms -- Linux included...

    Oh God, Alleluja i would say... didn't have any chance to give it a try, hope it is worth it, especially on the cpu resources consumption and on the "always on top" issue.

    Well they forgot the Debian 4.0 users which is still the current Debian stable. Since last beta it was impossible to use it and direct download links are not available for the older betas.

    I second that, when will they give us 64bit support.

    Basically it is a trivial problem:

    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/iceweasel ldd libflashplayer.so
    ./libflashplayer.so: /lib/tls/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by ./libflashplayer.so)

    shows that only the player is compiled against a too new system since last beta. Hopefully Adobe recompiles it fast, because autoinstall is now Flash 10 which will never work this way.

    Hopefully, Gnash will evolve into something useful. Let's hope the opening-up of the Flash format earlier this year will bring results.

    I 'll second that,wmode still broken in sid x64

    Has anybody had any luck with flash + pulseaudio?In Ubuntu 8.10 everything seems to work allright,in sid flash monopolizes the sound output and one has to force-reload alsa to get back to normal.

    Another issue that seems to be beyond them, is that the player does not block xscreensaver when playing fullscreen.
    So basically we finally have 'proper' fullscreen support with linux, which just utterly fails to be 'really' usable.
