Complete install method for libflashplayer with the dev version of 
pulseaudio on Fedora 11 x86_64

Install pulseaudio
1. Download the pulseaudio dev version and install.
2. Make sure the headers are installed else libflashsupport won't build.
rm -rf /usr/include/pulse/
3. ln -s /usr/local/src/pulseaudio/pulseaudio/src/pulse /usr/include/

Install libflashplayer(64)

1. yum remove flash-plugin
2. Download from here: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html
3. install as per instructions (hahahahhahhahhaha)
4. copy libflashplayer.so to


Install libflashsupport
1: Download libflashsupport http://project.revolutionlinux.com/PulseAudio
2: Edit the library path in the Makefile to /usr/lib64
3: Remove -WError from line 3.
4: Edit the Pulse library path in flashsupport.c to /usr/lib64/

// Default library location
#define LIBPULSEPATH /usr/lib64/libpulse-simple.so.0

6. make
7. make install

10. rm -rf /usr/lib/libflashsupport.so
11. ln -s /usr/lib64/libflashsupport.so /usr/lib/

Now libflashsupport will be found by libflashplayer and use the 64 bit 
libs for pulseaudio by default. This frees up /usr/lib/alsa-lib/ for 
installing the 32 bit libs for use with skype, realplayer, etc...

12. restart firefox.
