A new version of flashplayer-plugin-28.0.0.137-x86_64-1.xzm has been release. I upgraded mind with brokenman script update-flash.

I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

Do you have a link to the brokenman script? It's not in my Porteus system.

I just check and you are right it is not in v3.2.2 but I thought it was. It must have been removed from v3.2.2.

Thanks Jack. :) That code is certainly different than the update-flash script used in Porteus 4.0. :o

I ended up booting the 4.0 system, creating the updated flash module there then copied the module to the 3.2.2 system so both systems are current now.

I'll save the script you linked to in the 3.2.2 system.

Yes we did ncmprhnsbl and I even have that module in my 3.2 Modules folder.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ ls /mnt/sda6/porteus3.2/Modules/gtk*
/mnt/sda6/porteus3.2/Modules/gtk-browser-update-20171204.xzm*
guest@porteus:~$ 
But the standalone 4.0 command update-flash apparently isn't a part of it.

Actually this shouldn't require a fix. /opt/porteus-scripts should be a part of your $PATH variable.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ echo $PATH
/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/porteus-scripts
guest@porteus:~$ sudo update-flash
If you want all your variables maintained when you elevate to a root console then use: su -l
Then the scripts in /opt/porteus-scripts should be found.
