[K12OSN] Flash and nspluginwrapper



Hi folks,

Fedora 8+ and RHEL5+ use nspluginwrapper by default even on i386.

Why?

Because nspluginwrapper runs the plugins in a separate process, so plugin crashes do not take Firefox down with it.

(There is one Flash 10 induced browser crash that nspluginwrapper cannot protect against. See below for workaround.)

http://macromedia.mplug.org/
You need a bunch of workarounds to make Flash 10 work reliably on RHEL5 through Fedora 10. Soon these workarounds will be released as package updates.

Flash 10 with these workarounds is a bit less crashy than Flash 9.

If you see further problems after these workarounds please file bugs instead of ripping pieces out. nspluginwrapper is default for a reason. We can't fix problems if you don't report them.

Thank you.
