           Summary: flash on amd64
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: amd64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW

Now, I know Macromedia doesn't do 64bit flash, but I don't think kubuntu AMD64
has the possibility to get a browser going with flash even with some mild
tinkering on my side. 

There must be some viable solutions to this, to make it somehow possible with
only a minor amount of work left to do? I've heard about installing 32bit
firefox or chrooting things (no clue as to what that means, but still) I
couldn't find anything like that in synaptic or on the wiki. 

Basically, when my browser doesn't do flash, I get laughed at - "with your fancy
new 64bit pc, you don't even have flash?"  !

(on a side-note, you'd imagine firefox would be installed by default! On kubuntu
perhaps even with a nice crystal/kde theme on it to make it look like the rest
of the desktop)
