having a small amount of trouble installing flash player 9 on 5.8 soho. as you can see the glibc says older than 2.2 but gslapt says it is 2.3. i did not see an option to upgrade glibc in gslapt. also running as root
dave:$ cd /home/dave/install_flash_player_9_linux
./flashplayer-installer: line 76: [: 11): integer expression expected
ERROR: Your glibc library is older than 2.2.
Please update your glibc library.
i just updated plugins and the flashplayer was installed. so, no worries now.
