An update regarding comment #109 and my PPA: I built the packages for all architectures, but I don't have a 64bit machine to test. Although the packages are compliant, Flash 10 has new dependencies on libraries that aren't available in the ia32-lib package, and so the package will fail to install properly. Ideally this package should be updated (bug #246911) or a supplemental package created (which is a bit difficult to do since I can't test anything on my system).

In the meantime there is a way to get Flash 10 RC working for AMD64 users: use "getlibs", available here:

You will need to grab the following libraries like so:
getlibs -p libnss3-1d
getlibs -p libnspr4-0d
getlibs -p libcurl3

Once the requisite libraries are available, simple re-install the flashplugin-nonfree package from my PPA. Everything should work!

 Many thanks to "Shot" for helping out with testing.
