Has anyone tried the new flash player beta for Linux?


I can't get it to work on CentOS 6.8, ff 45.3.0-1, all x86_64. ff's pluginreg.dat shows the plugin is [INVALID], which is often a sign of bitness-mismatch, but that's not the case here.

$ tail -n 3 pluginreg.dat 
$ file /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so
/usr/lib64/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so: ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, stripped
$ strings /usr/lib64/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so | grep FlashPlayer_23
$ rpm -q firefox

I have it working on a different Linux system, not CentOS, with ff 48.0.1.
