Based on http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Flash I tried to install the

I get the following:

Did anyone experience a similar problem?
Anyone who cherry-picked which parts of the directions they felt like
following would have a similar problem, yes.  There's a reason the
sentence BEFORE that tells you to download the RPM first.

Something is still not working. Here's what I get:

[root sangam simon]# rpm -ivh
http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm

Any idea what is wrong?

PS: As I try out Fedora after having used Ubuntu for over three years,
there is one thing I appreciated about Ubuntu: The centralisation of
repositories. I think it happened about twice that I had to add
repositories to the standard ones. On my computer, I just need Flash,
mp3 and video-codecs. On Ubuntu that takes now about three clicks and
they are installed. I know, this is also a question of philosophy and a
legal considerations, but still, ... For the rest, Fedora works quite a
bit better on my computer than Ubuntu.

Ubuntu and Fedora do some things differently - no big deal.

If you've already got the adobe-release package installed, you must have
already installed the key. I don't see a problem with the above.

yum install flash-plugin
yum install AdobeReader_enu

? what doesn't work?

Hm...

[root sangam simon]# yum install flash-plugin
Loaded plugins: presto, protectbase, refresh-packagekit
0 packages excluded due to repository protections
Setting up Install Process
No package flash-plugin available.
Nothing to do
[root sangam simon]# yum install AdobeReader-enu
