I have been having issue with the flash plugin crashing frequently on my 64bit arch install in all browsers. I have an Nvidia gtx 260
with the latest proprietary drivers and the following relevant packages
lib32-flashplugin10 - from the aur, I tested this today and it removed the normal flash package
I edited '/etc/adobe/mms.cfg' to make sure EnableLinuxHWVifroDecode=1
I ran firefox from a terminal and this is the output that I got when flash crashed

What can I try to do to get rid of this issue? Do I need to give any more information on my setup? I would really like to be able to watch flash videos without having to use my
Does the error occur for both the 32 and 64 bit versions? Do they differ at all?
I removed the lib32-flashplugin and reinstalled the 64bit flashplugin from the main repo and I got a different but similar error. It seems to be something with the X server?

I searched pacman and found that I have this package. This seems to be a dependency for kdebase-workspace. Do you think its the culprit?

I got this problem too, it's always crash.
I've install 32 bit flashplugin and tried many old version (back to v10) but still happened
I ahve this issue too. Haven't had issues for a long time, but now it's incredible unstable.
I've had other issues too, that could suggest that the proprietary Nvidia driver has issues, but those issues seem to be solved now.
I do have lib32 flash and nvidia installed. I'll try to mess about with it a bit and return with any significant results.
Hmm, I fixed this problem, I've installed syslog-ng then found plugin-container can't found libfreetype2.so.6. I guess this is the cause because I installed freetype2-infinality< instead freetype2 to improve the theme of xfce4.
I reversed it then flash working like charm!
I played around with it for a bit and final found a solution, though not a general solution I'm afraid.
All I had to do was to edit
and to comment out
I suppose disabling hardware acceleration by setting it to zero would have the same effect.
I should mention that HWAcc have been working without issues for quite some time and just recently started acting up.
