254<p>
255Yes. Even though Macromedia doesn't provide a 64-bit version of Flash, there are
256a couple ways to get Flash working.
257</p> 254<p>
258 255Yes. Just <c>emerge netscape-flash</c>. Adobe has provided a 64-bit Flash plugin
259<p> 256starting with version 10.0.22.87.
260First, you can use a 32-bit browser like <c>mozilla-firefox-bin</c> or
261<c>opera</c> with the 32-bit Flash. After emerging the -bin package of your
262favorite browser, install Flash by doing <c>emerge netscape-flash</c>.
263</p>
264
265<p>
266Second, you can use a 64-bit browser such as <c>mozilla-firefox</c> with the
26732-bit Flash plugin by emerging <c>nspluginwrapper</c>, a which lets you load
26832-bit plugins on 64-bit browsers. Install your browser, <c>netscape-flash</c>,
269and then <c>nspluginwrapper</c>. The wrapper will automatically detect and setup
270Flash for your browser.
