Does your Linux 64bit version of Flash now make anonying beeping/distortion noises while playing videos? Well it turns out a recent “improvement” to glibc has caused some programs to now crash or do weird things.

As I use Google Chrome when using Flash I had to do the following:
but if you want to fix chrome on a system level, you can edit the Chrome Wrapper used to launch it.
sudo nano /opt/google/chrome/google-chrome
add the following line
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH export LD_PRELOAD="/usr/lib/libc/memcpy-preload.so" export CHROME_VERSION_EXTRA="beta"
