*Sigh*

The devs went on a hiking trip. Will be back after 2 weeks.

FYI, it (the 64bit variant) doesn't even work with opera here

You can extract tarball and copy the "libflashplayer.so" file into ~/.mozilla/plugins, as the page you posted instructs, until the devs come from hiking trip :)

Quickly hacked ebuild.: http://pastebin.com/MQTA2E6G

(working on amd64 USE="32bit 64bit multilib". 32bits plugin untested).
changelog from adobe-flash-10.2.159.1_p201011173.ebuild:
- license is now AdobeFlash-11 according to http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer11.html (needs mirroring)
- version string handling reworked a bit, far from optimal, but it works for that specific version
- inherit rpm not needed anymore and new src_unpack because upstream has now 2 proper .tar.gz for 32bits and 64bits- removed the memcpy-to-memmove hack, not needed anymore, according to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=638477#c287
- none of the tarball has readme file).

Happy testing !).

for the record: Bug 375151 - www-plugins/adobe-flash version bump: 11.0.1.60 released

I wonder how many puppies died this time....

Thanks for the Ebuild.


There seems to be a little problem, if I just want to build 64-bit plugin...
Code:
root@tijakool adobe-flash # ema1 adobe-flash

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Ok, got it - the unpack part needed a little tweaking:
Code:
src_unpack() {
        if use x86 || use 32bit; then
                x=32
                mkdir "${WORKDIR}/${PN}${x}"
                cd "${WORKDIR}/${PN}${x}"
                unpack "flashplayer11_b1_install_lin_${x}_${DATE_SUFFIX}.tar.gz"
        elif use 64bit; then
                x=64
                mkdir "${WORKDIR}/${PN}${x}"
                cd "${WORKDIR}/${PN}${x}"
                unpack "flashplayer11_b1_install_lin_${x}_${DATE_SUFFIX}.tar.gz"
        fi
}

Works on multilib 64bit only. rest is untested.

Of course, lack's ebuild version in portage the way to go (he has even taken care of the kde flash configuration utility).

The ebuild in portage doesn't work for me in Konqueror KHTML mode. No flash, instead a popup saying "We are sorry, nspluginviewer closed unexpectedly".

Seems to work in WebKit mode though...

The only thing that adobe-flash (11) ebuild achieves is stopping your flash from working. I had manually installed Flash 11 and replaced it with ebuild one and that's what happened. How hard is it to make ebuild that copies single .so file to /usr/lib/firefox/plugins?

Obviously you messed something with your "manual" method, new flash works for me on amd64 and x86. Also, you should take a look at the ebuild to see what it actually does, a lot more then copying .so file. And adobe flash is not "firefox only" plugin, you should take a look if maybe that is your problem...

As hard as writing 172 lines in one ebuild (228 with comments and blank lines). Be sure everyone involved in Gentoo appreciate your support.

[on a more positive tone]
Just use the damn package in the tree, and report bugs when, and only when, appropriate.

First, great job devs get the official ebuild out...second, I've never had any of the problems you've described...but this version crashes just as often for me as the previous version, which is fairly regularly. Fortunately, with chromium, I just have to refresh the page to get it back again.

I had 99% crash rate on youtube videos, but a few TV sites worked and a few custom flash things were intermittently crashing and/or hanging the system. This is with firefox-bin.

The update adobe-flash-11.0.1.60_beta201107131 solved all crashing problems for me.
Now I can even view multiple youtube videos at the same time as I open custom flash and TV feed, with no hanging or crash.

I had been using 10.2.159.1_p201011173 with no problems. I wasn't able to upgrade to 10.3.* because those versions required 32-bit multilib and I run a 64-bit-only system. Now I've upgraded to 11.0.1.60_beta201107131-r1, and Konqueror is crashing more often than I'm closing browser windows of my own volition. Flash does seem to work sometimes, but often crashes Konqueror entirely. I'm using KWebkitPart, FWIW.

Yeah, the testing I've done with the latest, the 64bit goes segfault in Opera when enabling the plug-in content, and it does not work with Icecat or Firefox either.

Selecting the 32bit one from the plug-in settings of the browser does make flashy worky again, though, it might be more crashy...

Apparently the beta 1 file is not available for download anymore.. but the beta 2 is. Is a new ebuild be released soon? =)

Just for a quick link, the files can be downloaded here: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer11.html

ps: I've just checked and the stable ebuild (www-plugins/adobe-flash-10.3.181.34) can't download the rpm file, while emerging...

Does anyone know if the new beta contains the security fixes in the latest 10.3? It only came out a day before it but they didn't mention any security fixes anywhere in the release notes.

Hi,

it's in they PDF, downloadable from this page :
Quote:
Security Enhancements
This version of Flash Player includes security enhancements described in Security Bulletins APSB11-
12
and APSB11-21.


Apparently, this beta2 fixes the security issues present in the 10.3.x versions.

Also, it seems to work fine on firefox-5.0-r2 :D
