Python would be another possibility.

I've run into that. It appears to be a problem with the version of Flash
player. I've got Flash player 10 working on OpenSUSE 11.1 and Kubuntu 8.10,
but not on earlier versions.
Why do they have to keep changing Flash player? Can't they just stick with one
version that works and quit breaking it?
One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them,
One OS to bring them all, and in the Darkness bind them,
In the land of Redmond, where the Sales Reps lie.
