> http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=17442
> (flashplugin-beta-opera)
> http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=18695 (flashplugin-mozilla,

> http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=21607 (flashplugin-x86_64) 
> From the above, I'd say that the following can be safely deleted: 
> flashplayer-opera64
> flashplugin-alpha-64
> flashplugin-beta-opera
> flashplugin-opera
> flashplugin-x86_64

I would say delete them all.
Regards Stefan
