My thoughts on Slackware, life and everything

May ’15 security updates for Adobe Flash

adobe_flash_8s600x600_2Just before going to bed with a belly full of good red wine and lamb roast, I noticed the new Adobe Flash security bulletin: apsb15-09.

I could not ignore that, so I prepared Slackware packages for you to address this new bulletin. As usual, the packages offer a Flash plugin for the chromium browser (PPAPI) and mozilla-compatible browsers (NPAPI).

If you have pipelight installed, you should run “pipelight-plugin –update” as root to get the latest MS Windows-based Flash installed automatically the next time the browser loads the pipelight plugin (at the time of writing, there is no pipelight update available but that should change in the coming days).

The updated Slackware package for chromium-pepperflash-plugin has version The updated flashplayer-plugin has version

    Mmm. I need to make your moussaka recipe sometime, but it seems like it’s more of a cold-weather recipe. 🙂

    Hi, i’m having some issues with flash player in firefox 38.0 since upgrading. No flash objects appear to be loading, while youtube shows a black box for a few seconds and then locks up the entire browser.

    Wondering if anyone else is having this problem? What can i check or do to fix this rather than downgrading?

    Hmm, nevermind the above post. I had both 32/64 plugins installed (use the 32bit one for some steam related things), although, i deleted the 32bit plugin form /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins, and now firefox is working. Seems to be conflicting somehow.

    What’s the proper way to install both 32/64 flash player on the same machine without conflicts?

    Thank you Eric!

    How do you build packages with a belly full of red wine and lamb roast? I’m lucky if I can count to ten in that state. :o)

    Luckily the Flash packages are just a re-packaging of someone else’s binaries, so not much consciousness is required.
    When compiling complexer packages such as the latest chromium-dev, a bit of alcohol will actually help me be more creative in my ways. A bit more, and I can do no more than watch some movie and sit it out…
