[Platform_Linux]Updated Flash crashes on start
Since updating to Flash 188.8.131.52 (flash-plugin-184.108.40.206-release.i386 from adobe-linux-i386 yum repository), Flash does not work, even on http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/ - it doesn't say Flash isn't installed; it says nothing at all.
Steps to Reproduce:
Visit any page with Flash content
plugin-container starts and immediately exits. with dom.ipc.plugins.enabled = false (disabled plugin-container) the whole browser crashes.

I have work machines I need to keep secure and rolling back to an unsupported version of flash is not acceptable when this could be fixed.

Affected configuration: 18.104.22.168 @ Sempron 2600+ (Xubuntu 12.04)
The situation is ridiculous. The problem could not be described clearer, it seems to be trivial, there are plenty of users badly affected and Adobe has ignored it for a few months :-/ Additionally releasing new, unfixed, versions of plugin which often breaks our dirty "downgrade-workaround" beeing installed by autoupdate.
FIX MY XP2400

two broken platform here
fixed BADLY by downgrading
HOW CAN 3 MONTHS AFTER BEING REPORTED a simple recompiled v11 is not available...?
3 bug openend, thousand and thousand of machine impacted, you have (luckily) not of report because it is higghly technical to troubleshout.
And you say ADOBE is unable to find someone running an AMD system with XP2000, 2200, 2400,...3000, even SEMPRON ???
Is that your solution to accelerate total rejection of this pluggin from earth ?
Really bothered to go to fix my old perfectly running machines just because of an compiler flag !

Is there any progress in solving this bug?
I am waiting on a solution other than disabling flash!

Not sure what Adobe is waiting for. I just spent a number of hours over several days, troubleshooting why Flash was dead on my Athlon XP Ubuntu Linux PC. Fixing a problem caused by a compiler option should be a "gimme": it takes so little time to fix, the update should have appeared over a month ago. If, on the other hand, you're wanting for a certain critical mass of complaints, then please count me in!

I manage various computers without SSE2 that are still fast and useful, Flash was running with good speed before, I don't see the need to require SSE2. Please, if there are parts of the code that can be accelerated with SSE2 then make them conditional as most software does.

Needless to say, it doesn't work on my computer either.

Same issue on an Athlon XP with Ubuntu 10.04 and Firefox 11.
Same behavior with Ubuntu 12.04 and Firefox 11.
It's a BIG problem here because downgrading Flash to version 10.x exposes to security flaws, and does not work any more on some sites like www.dailymotion.com

Same as other reporters.
System is and AMD Sempron 2200+ with no SSE2 (only MMX, MMX2, 3DNow!, 3DNow!Ext, and SSE).
Had to downgrade to 10.3 series.

I've read that flash 11.2 will be supported for 5 years (http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplatformruntimes/flashplayer11-3/), but without SSE2 many our computers (mainly fastest Athlon XP units) need to stick with flash 10.3 which won't be supported for that long. As a result I will be forced to disable flash in some time in the future.

Cannot user flash player 22.214.171.124
Hardware: AMD Athlon 900
OS: Debian 6 (linux)
Browser: Seamonkey and Firefox
3:02:39 AM GMT+00:00 Apr 17, 2012
this breaks flash 11.2 for our company. we have to build workarounds and stay on 11.1

This version of libflashplayer.so fails to run on all 32-bit AMD CPU's, millions of installed units.

This bug prevents me from using Flash on my computer
