"Back in June I wrote about Adobe dropping support for Flash Player on 64-bit Linux. Since the existing version of the 64-bit Linux Flash client had a serious security vulnerability staying with the last release isn't really an option. I also wrote about the various ways to get around the problem, none of which were entirely satisfactory. At the time the developers of SalixOS, a Slackware derivative with a 64-bit build, chose to add Gnash, an FOSS alternative to Flash, to their repository. They also configured the repository to have the automated updates available in that distribution replace Flash 10.0.45.2 with Gnash 0.8.7.
