Flash in Mozilla 1.3

Goes into $MOZILLA_HOME/plugins/. You should have two files there ShockwaveFlash.class and libflashplayer.so. For me, I installed mozilla 1.3 into /usr/local/mozilla-1.3, so the dir is /usr/local/mozilla-1.3/plugins/. This was not true in older versions (eg Mozilla 1.1), in this case the files appeared in /usr/local/mozilla/ (or the install directory).

You can get the latest version of flash from MacroMedia.

Here is the configuration file for my X server.

# File generated by anaconda.

Section "ServerLayout"
        Identifier     "Anaconda Configured"
        Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
        InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
        InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Section "Files"

# The location of the RGB database.  Note, this is the name of the
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db").  There is normally
# no need to change the default.

    RgbPath	"/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"

# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.

    FontPath   "unix/:7100"

I made these pages to provide some information about the setup that I have done, but I did not proofread it for correctness, and in most cases did not test it. There are commands in these pages that would definately delete or corrupt all the data on your computer (especially the dualboot section). In fact it happened to me.... So you are on your own!
