Hello John

i'm very sorry for my poor english. i'm confused about the time you lose
because of this.

the problem (and it's a minor one) is not about the flash plugin
himself. it's work well on my hardy

I talk about the .deb package and the process of the

During the configuration/installation of the .deb there is a script who download the adobe official tar.gz of the plugin.
It's work well and i have no problem with this and i have flash plugin working on firefox.

I talk about the case of having network problems during the download of the .tar.gz file or having not correctly configured the proxy settings to make wget work properly. (Wget is used to download the tar.gz). In such case naturally the flash plugin can't be installed.
The wish is to flag the .deb package not correctly configured in such case to let dpkg retry an other time. Actually when such things happen the package is considered correctly installed. it is not a very important request because a "aptitude reinstall flashplugin-nonfree" resolve the problem but perhaps it will be convenient for sysadmin of a desktop parc to know than in reality the package is not correctly installed.  

hope this can help..
