The kdebase4 package is obsolete (it was only used when KDE 4 was not the default) and no longer exists since Fedora 9, there's kdebase, kdebase-runtime and kdebase-workspace. Konqueror is part of kdebase.

Interesting, this works for me fine on i386 (with kde-4.1.x)

I pleasantly discovered yesterday, that kde-4.2.0 also makes x86_64 + nspluginwrapper + flash-plugin work too. woo.

I'll put it on the kde42 tracker, when kde-4.2.0 lands in updates, please confirm if this is still an issue for you.

Flash video is a bit unreliable under Konqueror. Ssometimes it works from the first try sometimes flash loads but doesn't load the video stream and I have to hit "refresh" few times.

IIRC it start to happend when adobe dropped support for non-gecko based browsers.

On the other hand flash animations runs ok, including all those nasty ads on webpages.
