Post Adobe releases more secure flashplayer-plugin 10.1
but pulls the 64-bit version.

If you have the stock flashplugin-nonfree package in Mepis 8.5-32 bit, it comes with an easy script to upgrade in the terminal:

Code:
su -c 'update-flashplugin-nonfree --install'
This script will download the latest version of the plugin tarball, check the md5sum, extract the .so library file and install over the older one.

Mepis 8.0 user's version will not work, though possibly installing the Mepis 8.5 2.8 deb version will allow them to perform the update:

http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/ftp.mepis.org/mepis/pool/main/f/flashplugin-nonfree/

Restart any browsers to let them load the new plugin.

Adobe pulled the 64-bit version, users should install enable the debian-multimedia repository and install "flashplayer-mozilla".

Since the stock plugin in Mepis has critical security flaws, everyone should perform this. Perhaps Warren should update the ISOs to include the new plugin, too.

This is the result of following the given command in post #1 above. It seem .tar.gz package is saved. Do I need to install the saved package manually?
Thanks!

No, it also installs it, though you will have to start your browsers to use it.

So, Should this work on 64-bit?

On MEPIS 8.5 I ran the command and restarted browsers, but I still get 10.0.45.2 from the test site: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/

Mepis 64 bit comes with a 32-bit flash plugin, I will have to test on my 64-bit install.

Actually MEPIS 64 bit comes with 64 bit flash as far as I know, the problem is that Adobe didn't upgrade that.

I was thinking that the 64 bit was only ever present in a beta form, never in a stable release....

Actually I think it was called "Alpha" but it worked pretty well, and again I think it was installed by default in MEPIS 64 bit (can't check right now).

Can anyone confirm the above?

M8.0 is my main platform, and I'd rather not screw around and mess something up. I've fought with Flash in the past.

Otherwise, shouldn't we expect an update from the repos from Warren?
