    I seem to recall that in the dim and distant past
    there was a soft-float version of libflashplayer.so
    from an ancient android port floating around.

    Unfortunately, I can no longer find it. the oldest
    version I can find, including the ones in the archives
    on the Adobe site, all seem to be hard-float,
    according to readelf -A (HardFP tag for SP and DP
    appears to be present).

    Unfortunately, I am running a soft-float distro on
    my AC100. Could anyone point me in the direction of
    where I might acquire a soft-float libflashplayer.so?

    I am quite certain I had it running on my AC100
    a long time ago, but since then I did a clean
    reinstall and lost the plugin.


The use the kotelett.no/ac100/phh/Android2.2/libflashplayer.so copy
stored by archive.org

sudo wget -O /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so


I hadn't thought of archive.org. Nice one. :)

Unless I am wrong:
Tag_ABI_HardFP_use: SP and DP
implies a hard-float binary, does it not?

Wasn't there a libflashplayer.so once upon a time
that ran (even if poorly) on armv5tel and armv6l?
