The sound wasn't playing through pulseaudio when I tested even though
the "Sound Preferences" dialog showed a stream for "npviewer alsa
plugin". A second test after closing and reopening "Sound Preferences"
shows that it is not.
I still need to have these libs linked.
ln -s /usr/lib64/alsa-lib/libasound_module_*pulse* /usr/lib/alsa-lib/
So even though I have libflashsupport compiled to use /usr/lib64 it
appears that libflashplayer(64) is not using it and is in fact hard
coded to use /usr/lib/ and is in fact bypassing libflashsupport for some
- That means that I can't use realplayer or skype with 32 bit pulse libs.
There must be a define for flash to use /usr/lib64 as the path. Anyone
have an idea on this?
