Description David Nielsen 2006-08-29 16:44:06 EDT
Description of problem:
When installing gnash-plugin it registers fine with firefox but not with
epiphany which strikes me as odd since they use the same backend.
Copying the plugin .so file into every firefox/mozilla plugins directory makes
it pick it up.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install epiphany gnash-plugin
Actual results:
No gnash plugin available in Epiphany while its available in firefox

Expected results:
Gnash plugin available in Epiphany

Additional info:
AMD64 X2

On an IA32 system, this just works fine.
Comment 2 David Nielsen 2007-03-15 01:03:15 EDT
Upstream bug with (untested) patch to solve this. Turns out Epiphany on x86_64
it still only looks in /usr/lib when the plugins go to /usr/lib64
