I have just cleaned up flash plugin modules. After cleaning only 2 flash
flash-plugin-9 (for Gecko family web browsers only like firefox/seamonkey)
this is most recent 9,0,115 release of flash with XEmbed support.
It will not work with any other web browser (maybe except Opera 9.50+).
flash-plugin-all (this plugin will work not only with above FF/SM but also
Konqueror and I suppose Opera < 9.50). Just any browser should work.
This flash is 9,0,48 release and this one is the last one which does not use
XEmbed. Some people find 9,0,48 to be more stable and faster than 9,0,115.
Due to the bug in all flash plugins I also patched gtk+-2 to workaround
problems with flash. So gtk+-2 will be recompiled on next lunar update to
stop konqueror crashing on pages with flash. For firefox and seamonkey this
workaround does nothing. I hope Adobe will not ignore my mail/bug report and
fix the internal flash-gtk bug to make workaround redundant.
have a nice day,
