Default Flash problems on FreeBSD 6.3


I am having some trouble installing Flash on FreeBSD 6.3 with Gnome.

I have tried:
1. Installing the www/linuxpluginwrapper
2. Installing the www/linux-flashplugin7
3. Uninstalling the two above, as they didn't work
4. Installing the www/nspluginwrapper

Now that I try to re-install the linux-flashplugin, I get this:

signon# cd /usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin7 && make install clean
===>  Vulnerability check disabled, database not found
===>  Found saved configuration for linux-flashplugin-7.0r70
=> fp7_archive.zip doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/flashplugin.
=> Attempting to fetch from http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/installers/archive/.
fetch: http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/installers/archive/fp7_archive.zip: size mismatch: expected 33513720, actual 39658950
=> Attempting to fetch from ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/distfiles/flashplugin/.
fetch: ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/distfiles/flashplugin/fp7_archive.zip: File unavailable (e.g., file not found, no access)
=> Couldn't fetch it - please try to retrieve this
=> port manually into /usr/ports/distfiles/flashplugin and try again.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin7.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/www/linux-flashplugin7.
I have posted about this problem previously at:


I've also searched this forum for cues, but nothing has helped me yet. What I've found:


is that one has to install Flash from ports, but when that doesn't work - what's one supposed to do?

Thanks, Vahagn
