Flash player in Fedora 10


I just installed Fedora 10 beta, and I can't get Flash player, or swfdec to work. Is there any way I can get either of them to work.

Unless you're keen on testing F10 and providing feedback to the developers, I'd go with F8 or 9.
F10 really is in beta atm.

Question

OK Fedora 10 is no longer beta and im still having problems with flash player.
In F9 the solution was that you had to install the libflashsupport but there is not one listed in the F10 repos...

I don't know if it will help, but I just installed F10 and I installed Flash the way it's explained here:

http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mj...f10.html#flash

And it works fine for me.

Adobe repository must be installed
* Install the Flash Plugin

Quote:
su -c 'yum install flash-plugin'
* If you don't hear audio during playback of flash video just install packet called libflashsupport

Quote:
su -c 'yum install libflashsupport'
Installation without Adobe repository: Install Flash Player 10:

* 64bit Flash

Make sure to uninstall flash-plugin, libflashsupport and nspluginwrapper before you do these steps

Quote:
wget http://download.macromedia.com/pub/l...6_64.so.tar.gz
tar xvzf libflashplayer-10.0.d20.7.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz -C ~/.mozilla/plugins
restart Firefox

The 64bit plugin file called libflashplayer.so should be extracted into /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ and not ~/.mozilla/plugins/

Next time there is no need to download from Adobe website.
See this howto for 64 bit flash.

Putting it there will work only for the current user, putting it in lib64 will denominate across all users.
