Description of problem:
libpepflashplayer.so is not loading on Fedora 30.

You can try any libpepflashplayer.so in any PPAPI browser (Chrome, Chromium, Opera, Vivaldi) and they all will fail.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Upgrade from F28 or F29 with working flashplayer to F30.

Or boot up a Live-ISO of F30, enable the Adobe and/or russianfedora-repo, and install either of these packages or both of them: chromium-pepper-flash or flash-player-ppapi.

Open a flash website and allow Flash to be executed on the website settings.

Actual results:
A "not allowed / not available sign", i will provide an attachment image of this.

Expected results:
A working Flash in opera-stable, opera-developer, opera-beta, chromium, vivaldi-stable. As the same /home is used perfectly with working Flashplayer on all PPAPI-Browsers on my Fedora 29

Additional info:
As you know that an upgrade from F29 to F30 is not possible at the moment because of the superfamous accepted blocker-bug you have heard of for sure, i installed F28 and enabled flash and played my flashgame with F28. Then i upgraded that installation from there to F30. Flash broke immediately systemwide.

I can confirm! glibc 2.29 is the culprit!

Fortunately, i tested with a F29-live-ISO. Flash stopped working after dnf update glibc --releasever=30. Unfortunately, i tried to downgrade and failed. distro-sync glibc --releasever=29 broke the live-system and rendered it totally unusable. So, there is no temporary solution to my real F30 installation, i guess.

Should i report the issue upstream to the glibc-Developers or are they already aware of this?

If I run `google-chrome-stable` from a terminal and try to load some Flash content, I see the following error:

    [17713:17713:0517/104100.346213:ERROR:buffer_manager.cc(488)] [.DisplayCompositor]GL ERROR :GL_INVALID_OPERATION : glBufferData: <- error from previous GL command

On Fedora 30, this appears to have been fixed in glibc-2.29-15.fc30.x86_64.
