Posted by jhsu on May 31 2008,00:38I downloaded the Flash Player zip archive. I put install_flash_player_7_linux_r73.tar.gz in my /home/dsl directory and uncompressed it. I'm not having difficulty installing it.
The problem is that every time I reboot, I lose the installation and have to reinstall Flash Player 7. Exactly what do I need to add to the .filetools document?

From your bootcodes you appear to have a backup on hda3
That should already be backing up your ~/.mozilla directory, so these files should be there when you restore your backup on your next boot.
Posted by roberts on May 31 2008,20:14The default .filetool.lst contains home/dsl which will backup everything in your home directory. That being the case, one should not have to do anything special for flash plugin
