www-plugins/adobe-flash 11.2.202.310-r1

Final environment Use flags: +abi_x86_64, +sse2, -kde, -abi_x86_32

i ??? and can do nothing about it except for look for adobe alternatives. :evil:

figured out why, adobe stopped linux development of adobe flash. except for with chrome, and i dont use that...

so my alternatives are shumway, gnash, and lightspark.... ill give shumway a whirl since its a new one to me, and gnash being oldest known of.... (lightsparks new to me too) (i chose shumway first because it renders SWF > html javascript.)

https://github.com/mozilla/shumway

do you really need flash?

There are a number of ways of watching youtube without flash.

If you love your machine don't put flash on it, it will appreciate it.

Things like gnash do rather limit you to youtube only though in my experience.
