A Possible Reason for Problems with Flash Player



After attempting to install the Firefox Flash plugin,
I kept getting SELinux alerts every time I started Firefox.
After deleting all the files in the directory
/usr/lib/nspluginwrapper, I continued to get SELinux alerts.
The flash plugin attempts to make the stack executable, which
SELinux does not permit on my system.

The alerts from one invocation of Firefox follow:

 2/home/daf}firefox
Error: /usr/lib/nspluginwrapper/plugin-config not found
       /usr/lib64/nspluginwrapper/plugin-config not found
FoxyProxy settingsDir = /home/daf/.mozilla/firefox/jde131vm.default

Not quite sure what to do with this, other than to ignore it.
