The odd thing is that when I boot to another Linux distro then version 11 works there.
Being a mutiple booter. I can run Flash 11 in Antix but not in Macpup Puppy Linux on the same computer. It may be a distro linux file structure thing. I just roll with the punches when that happens.
I know Flash 11 has some humongous minimal hardware requirements
