What is the procedure to install Adobe Flash Player in Fedora 12 [in

It results in an rpm that produces
"libflashplayer.so" but does not
install it as the instruction implies. I copied that to
"/usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/" to no avail!
Just a small clarification, AFAIK the Omega LiveDVD was *32-bit only*.
Then how do you have a /usr/lib64/ directory?
Thanks to all!
The problem was that Adobe provides the 32 bit file when you follow the
menu on their page. There is however a 64 bit tar.gz file released
12/08/2009. Once I installed that I could see my crossword puzzles
All I know is that when I ran the Omega install on this computer it
installed 64 bit F-12. If it had been an option I would have most
likely let it remain 32, it came as a surprise.
Anyway the trick was to collect the right libflashplayer.so and simply
copy it into /home/bobg/.mozilla/plugins. I did the same thing with the
other newly installed F-12 using the 32 bit file and it now works too.
That's a similar computer but is 32 bit.
I should have asked yesterday and saved a lot of wasted time and
effort. Again thanks for the help.
