Hi there,

I have DragonFly on my workstation computer. I'm using firefox with flash via linuxpluginwrapper.

Going forward instructions from the port, I have always patched /usr/src/libexec/rtld-so, after building world.

Today, as usual, after world I've patched sources, and made 'make install clean'. Unfortunatelly, actual sources of rtld-so are not supporting changes from libmap's diff, required for flash. So, the effect was simple - ld-elf.so.1 has been broken ;-) ALL SYSTEM was totally broken.

I was able to recover it (mouting filesystem from LiveCD, chflags, and move backuped ld-elf.so.1.old to /usr/libexec).

Of course, the fault was on my side - after reading @commits I should know, that rtld-so has changed.

But, I want to warn all desktop users, working with flash - the plugin is currently broken, and better DON'T try to use it, because You all could end like me ;-))
