Don't use the Adobe-supplied flash-plugin rpm as it installs it in the
wrong place!

ogley@riggwelter:/home/install> rpm -qpl
http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/flash-plugin-9.0.31.0-release.i386.rpm
/usr/lib/flash-plugin
/usr/lib/flash-plugin/LICENSE
/usr/lib/flash-plugin/README
/usr/lib/flash-plugin/homecleanup
/usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so
/usr/lib/flash-plugin/setup
/usr/share/doc/flash-plugin-9.0.31.0
/usr/share/doc/flash-plugin-9.0.31.0/readme.txt

Instead, use the flash-player (note the difference in name) from
http://software.opensuse.org/download/mozilla/ - works a treat and if
you add that repo to YaST or Smart, it'll get updated in future of
course.
