    Flash problem

    I can not seem to get flash to work anymore. When I go to sites which have flash video content I get the message that plugins are required to view all the media. However when I download and install acrobat flash it no longer works. Is this because of the new flashplayer 10?
    Any solution?
    I have Knoppix 5.1.1

    I am in knoppix5.3.1 and yes there does seem to be a problem with flash 10
    until a better suggeston comes along, go into
    /home/knoppix/.mozilla/plugins
    and delete the file named
    libflashplayer.so
    then copy the previous flash 9 libflashplayer.so into that directory.
    which should restore your flash capabilities.for icewaesel.

    I am using Knoppix 5.1.0 and I would like to know how can I download Flash Player 9 ?
    The Adobe web site (which my 'mozilla' takes me to) has only Flash Player 10,
    which gives me GLIB_2.4 not found.

    If anyone of you has the download link for "libflashplayer.so" of Flash Player 9,
    please post it here.

    I've uploaded flash-player-plugin-9.0.21.55 (libflashplayer.so) at uploadmirrors here.
    This is an old one, as a result, no NGC video, enlarment screens, Hulu, yahoo video on popurl or metacafe site,
    however, you can click metacafe small video on popurl and watch a vignette.
    inbed to
    /usr/lib/iceweasel/plugins/
    or
    /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/
    or
    /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins/
    Make a readme for your self.
    It's for the 5.0.1, BTW.
    enjoy
