Bug Description

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

Adobe has once again updated their flash player to 9.0 r115 (as of Dec. 3, 2007)
The new file causes a checksum mismatch again.
The .deb from debian unstable (sid) does install the latest version correctly.

The flashplugin-nonfree package should be updated in Gibbon, and probably others to reflect this change.
This would of course benefit new users who would not be able to solve this issue manually.

here is the output of my apt-get:

root@asgard:~# apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree
