I've got some of this set of items working:
I built the system using cobbler on an Acer Revo 3610, so it's not a
totally standard distro, but I am assiduous in sticking to as few
repos as possible as it can be hard working with the dependencies
otherwise. That said, I'd rather use yum than diy build, just to keep
the process consistent as I install/uninstall, so that flash plugin
came from this repo:
[tim at localhost ~]$ cat /etc/yum.repos.d/flash.repo
I found that file somewhere...
fwiw, I've had to rip out pulseaudio from f12 to get hdmi sound
working, which means that, until I can get it back in again, I cannot
run both mythtv and firefox for eg BBC iPlayer content. It's also a
bit annoying that the flash plugin is too cpu hungry to deliver
sensibly sized iPlayer pictures.
I've not thrashed the browser, so it could still crash on some sites -
I think that you probably need to be more precise about when it
crashes with the plugin.
