Re: Flash player with Fedora 9



Please visit Fedora FAQ and follow the instructions to install the flash player.

I copied and pasted the lines into a root terminal, and it worked first time after completion.

If you're running on 64-bit Fedora, you'll either have to use nspluginwrapper with the version you have installed, or run the 64-bit Alpha version of Flash Player.  You can download it from here:

http://download.macromedia.com/pub/labs/flashplayer10/libflashplayer-10.0.d21.1.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz

And, extract it to /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ by running

cd /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/
sudo tar xzvf libflashplayer-10.0.d21.1.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz


I have had a really good experience with the 64-bit version, and found the 32-bit player running under nspluginwrapper to be somewhat flaky.
