[Fixed] getFlash11 - Update
« on: November 11, 2015, 12:13:11 PM »
Another cat and mouse game, this time Adobe is the culprit.

After Pandora refused to play without Flash's latest security updates, I was forced to resolve the issue.

It appears that as of yesterday adobe changed their downloads directory structure, as a result the link to download the latest Flash v11.2.202.548 is broken.  This didn't just break our getFlash11 but appears to have also broke most major Linux Distributions "get Flash" scripts running curl to auto find the download link.

The latest Flash download is located under a directory using it's version number, kinda a catch 22 scenario.   However the issue is fixed with:
Code: [Select]
DOWNLOAD=$(curl -s 'https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/download/?installer=Flash_Player_11.2_for_other_Linux_(.tar.gz)_32-bit&standalone=1'  | grep -o 'https://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/11.2.*/install_flash_player_11_linux.i386.tar.gz')

I'm submitting the updated getFlash11 extension asap, meanwhile if anyone needs the fixed script to install or update Flash11 with latest security updates;  Please download the attached script, set exec perms and run it to update your flash11 extension
