should f11 x86_64 mislead the user into thinking flash player is installed?



  it's possible i'm misunderstanding this, but after a fresh install
of f11b x86_64, the first time i try to view a web page with an
embedded flash video, i get the standard "you need a plug-in, would
you like to get it?", followed by downloading and installing the adobe
flash plugin.

  however, it has no effect since (i'm guessing) this is an x86_64
install, not i386.  and i'm aware of the extra work one has to go thru
for 64-bit flash support:

http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f10.html#flash

does that first attempt at installing a flash player take into account
whether it's an i386 or x86_64 install?  it doesn't seem to, which is
going to leave 64-bit users more than a little confused if they don't
appreciate the difference and they end up with what is allegedly a
successful plugin install that still doesn't work.

  or have i misread something?
