Hello Mat,

flash player in firefox works for me... strange is that flash player
doesn't works in konqueror... And I have installed flash player
package... I have AMD Turion(tm) 64 Mobile ML-40.


This message was sent using IMP, the Internet Messaging Program.

So are you running the 32-bit OS version... or are you running 64-bit OS
with a 32-bit application. From my own understanding there is no 64-bit
flash player. :(

I've found the 'mixed-mode' a PITA when trying to update packages. :( My
gut feel is just to run the 32-bit version in the interim until we get some
of these apps over eventually to 64-bit.

A shame... but much cleaner.

I do understand the processor/library reasons for this. However from an
end-user viewpoint it's frustrating to say the least.
Also try explaining it to relos.. with their shiny new 'linux' about 64-bit
binaries and 32-bit binaries... particularly when they are computer novices
and use Suse for Web-browsing and Email. (really!)
