    If you have firefox-2, komposer, seamonkey-browser or thunderbird, please temporarily uninstall these packages, and reinstall libnss3-dev.

    Be warned: if you fail to uninstall the above packages, libnss3-dev will not install as those packages mark themselves as "Provides" and create symlinks to those libraries. The problem is that the versions in those packages are not compatible with Flash.

    Problem resolved... when looking through my "local" packages list it listed libnss3-1d, so I forced the version to the intrepid one and it is now working. Thank you for your time and patience Psyke83!

    Psyke, can I ask please that while your PPA is ahead of Intrepid you give us testers a brief changelog of whats happening? This will help to focus the test design on changes. I note weve had 2 and 3 come through recently.

    Alexander's view is to synch following A6.

    I've been in touch with Alexander. As for the package in my PPA, revisions ~ppa2 and ~ppa3 had very minor changes to adjust the depends on nspluginwrapper, which only affected the build for Hardy.

    The ia32-libs package has been updated (bug #246911), so the official flashplugin-nonfree should be uploaded soon.

    What problems are you having with the flashplugin-nonfree package?

    Thats great Psyke83

    I dont think any of the flash issues Ive found are packaging problems - I think its a code problem in the plugin.

    People can test this by going to this URL:

    http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/demos/

    And here on youtube what its supposed to look like:

    You're correct, it's not a problem in the packaging or any components of Ubuntu. The Linux version of the plugin simply doesn't have 100% feature parity with the Windows version yet, I suspect. Nevertheless, RC2 is a vast improvement over Flash 9 and the other Flash 10 previews.

    Re: HOWTO: PulseAudio Fixes (distilled)

    Hi everyone,

    Just to keep you apprised...

    For 64-bit users: ia32-libs has been updated to include the necessary libraries for the latest release of Flash - this means that GetLibs is no longer necessary. As well as that, the (32-bit) "libflashsupport" library has been completely removed from this package, as it's been known to cause crashes for a long time.

    Everyone else: the flashplugin-nonfree package should get updated soon, pending review and approval from the MOTU team.

    As for PulseAudio, it seems we won't be getting 0.9.12 in time for release (too many bugs). However, work is being done to ensure that the default ALSA device is set to PulseAudio in Intrepid; this change alone will fix a *lot* of problems.

    It may be related to pulseaudio, but I don't think that alsa is closing properly. I have to force-reload (not just reload or restart alsa) to be able to use either alsa or pulseaudio output to alsa. Any ideas?

    That would be an ALSA/kernel issue, I imagine. Have you tried something simpler, such as restarting PulseAudio?

    Code:
    $ pulseaudio -k && pulseaudio

    Hi,

    With the latest updates, Flash should work for amd64 users without the need for GetLibs; I've updated the guide to reflect this.

    Can I ask anyone that's got a 64 bit machine to offer feedback on the stability of Flash from my PPA? Do you observe any Firefox crashes or Flash content "disappearing"?

    Flash 10 will hit the official repositories soon, and there may be further problems that need ironing out (within nspluginwrapper).
