I emerged netscape-flash-6.0.69 this morning as it was in my -u world. Two problems:

It is not detected by Mozilla (1.2.1-r2)
gflashplayer does not run (gives the error: ERROR: libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

Anyone experiencing similar problems?

Well it seems that libflashplayer.so (or similar) is definitly linked to libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3 (ldd libflash....), I have it installed from RPM, still the player segment faults and the plugin still doesn't work (on mozilla + gtk2 +xft). To make mozilla detect it I needed to make a symlink to /opt/netscape/plugins/libflashplayer.so and flashplayer.xpt in my /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, still the plugin wouldn't be detected cause your system misses the libstdc++..... lib, mozilla would output an error in console and start without the plugin,

I can't remember exactly what I did as I'm not on my gentoo box right now, but I had the same problem and simply made a soft link from the file it's looking for to the respective file on my system in /usr/lib. You could do an ls on /usr/lib/libstdc++* and then find the closest matching item to that file. Then just soft link them as so:

ln -sf /path/to/original/lib /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3

Not sure if this is the cleanest way to do it, but it hasn't hurt anything yet.

/usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.1-1.so.2 => /usr/lib/libstdc++-libc6.2-2.so.3

After I emerged lib-compat, the symbolic link fixed it on mine too. Thanks for the info guys! I don't know what I'd do without this forum. :)

Mozilla doesn't seem to detect flash.

I did the libc link and checked that links to /opt flash libraries are in place. By the way, I linked 6.2-2.so.3 to 6.1-1.so.2, because 6.1-1.so.2 exists and 6.2-2.so.3 doesn't.

No error messages in stdout/stderr, and I get a big grey rectangle when it's supposed to be flash.

gflashplayer segfaults.

I'm running Mozilla 1.2.1-r3 and Flash 6.0.69.

Any idea?

Updated netscape-flash to 6.0.69-r1 and lib-compat 1.1. Still have the same problem.

I had / have the same problem in my unstable install, in my stable install it works fine, I tried many different versions and solutions but always got the rectangle...... Thought it happenend during gnome-2.1.x release........ but I'm not sure,

I think there are two seperate issues here (or possibly both combined). First of all, the flash plugin is compiled with an old version of glibc which is incompatible with those of us using GCC3 or above as a compiler. The solution to this is to emerge lib-compat.

The second issue (and this was the problem for me) was that the flash plugin does NOT work if you compile Mozilla with GTK2. I edited out my gtk2 flag in my USE line and changed it to gtk, re-emerged Mozilla 1.2.1 and the flash plugin worked fine. I still have anti-aliased fonts all over including the UI, and the functionality appears identical (i use skins anyway, and the GTK interface seems snappier than the GTK2 one).

Hope this helps,

Elmo
