Description Hans de Goede 2004-08-27 08:08:43 UTC
I know the flash plugin is not supported by Fedora, but this seems to
be a Fedora specific problem not a flashplugin problem.

I'm running FC3-test1 kept up2date with the fedora development tree.
For my work I need to access some pretty heavy flash using webpages (I
can't give you a link unfortunatly)

This worked fine in FC3-test1 untill some time ago, I think when
mozilla-1.7.2 showed up in the devel tree.

At first I thought this was caused by gcc-c++-abi issues, so I down
graded to the mozilla-1.7.2 release from FC2-updates. But the bug
still was there, downgrading to 1.6 from FC2-core seems to have fixed

The strange thing is that I also have an up2date FC2 machine which
seems to work just fine with mozilla-1.7.2 and flash, although I
haven't tested this as heabilly as I use it on my FC3 machine.

In general it might be a good idea to compile mozilla with gcc32 cause
compiling it with 34 probably will also cause problems for other
plugins like java. I know these aren't supoorted, but still lots of
people are using them.

It seems that mozilla itself in FC3 rawhide seems to have severe
issues.  I personally don't use mozilla so I have not observed any
behavior like this.

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2004-08-31 06:05:03 UTC
Please search the Bug databases and mailing lists of other
distributions who are using gcc-3.4.x.  See if they too are having
similar problems to what you described with flash-plugin-7.0.25.

I'm happy to report that this problem seems to have been fixed by one or the
other update quite some time ago, sorry for not closing it myself.
