flash package conflicts with newer netscape-common packages
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
Newer netscape-common packages come with macromedia's official flash plugin
already installed in the plugins directory and after installing the flash
package the about:plugins screens says both plugins are being used. This
seems to cause the browser to freeze on some pages that contain
official plugin before installing flash...although the official plugin
actually seems more stable and works better. Any ideas?
I agree with everything that you have stated. I will issue an errata today
stating that the flash plugin included in Powertools should not be used with
netscape-common-4.75-2 or later packages since netscape-common already includes
the flash plugin.
