OK, fair enough. But out of curiosity, why did you select -default?
particular reason?

Habit I guess, acccept for netbooks I always choose default

OK, thanks.

Now it is getting interesting, with desktop kernel ( 3.3.5-1-desktop )
flash is not crashing ( that is 235) with or without hardware
accelaration. I will need to try it with default kernel as well to see
if there might me a kernel related issue going on.

Does anybody know when the flash crashes where does it dump the garbage


The new 11.2.x.235 Flash intermitent crashes on different situations. Mostly
when video is redirected to YouTube page from another website( video
embedded). Sometimes on YouTube site you could find one or another crashing (a
reload could make it work ocassionally)

I have been testing it on other sites like Vimeo, Metacafe, etc. It shows more
crashes than YouTube. Not sure why.

So far my tests and reports are coming from openSUSE 12.1 KDE 4.x..x and
GNOME 3 (64 bit often 32 bit less crashes) and Firefox 12.0. I will check soon
other operating systems to isolate it from distros specific packaging as soon
it's possible.

Hope it could give you any idea or leads.
