Microsoft just gave up because ikvm.net is clearly a surperior solution...

Simon, do you have firefox compiled as a 64-bit binary?? The firefox included with JDS is actually a 32 bit x86 binary and libraries, which this plugin works with fine. To my knowledge there is currently no 64-bit Firefox in any Solaris Distribution. It would probably make it more memory hungry anyway :)

Doug: No, but the 32 bit binary works fine. However, I doubt the 32-bit Flash binary will; certainly the 32-bit Ubuntu binary doesn't install on my 64-bit Ubuntu installation. I assume there is CPU-specific code in the codecs.

Simon, it should work just fine on your x64 system if it's running an OpenSolaris based distribution. Due to the way 64-bit is implemented in OpenSolaris, you shouldn't require a 64-bit version of the Flash binary unless as Doug mentioned you're using a 64-bit Firefox binary. With OpenSolaris, a 64-bit kernel can transparently run both 32-bit and 64-bit executables.

Hi Simon, You can use the 32bit Flash 9 plugin on 64bit Ubuntu via the nspluginwrapper: http://marius.scurtescu.com/node/119 Or: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FirefoxAMD64FlashJava Hope that helps. -James
