Thanks !!
 This one did the trick. Flashplayer is working.
The new flash plugin in Intrepid has several advantages, the most
important being that it's now a native amd64 program on amd64 Ubuntu.

The package builds without source modifications, I'm attaching some
amd64 and i386 packages for people to try.

Please test them and report how they work. I could only test the amd64
version, they work fine for me.

Motherboard is 'new' FOXCONN P4M9007MB recently replaced.
 Old MB (FOXCONN 945GZ7MC) had a problem (disk-interface)
 that prevented me to upgrade beyond 6.06LTS.problems
