Flash player installation problems


I run Fedora 10, 64 bit version and I can't get flash player to work.
I tried yum install flash-plugin, the installation went ok but it wasn't working, so i removed it and downloaded from the adobe site, i got a not verified signature error at first, but it went through with rpm --nosignature option and still it's not working.
I read a bunch of articles, installed and removed a lot of files, all useless for now.
Thanks for any help.

this was one of the primary reasons I gave up on 64 bit linux (I use F10 too). everything is sweet harmony in i386 land.

There's a whole lot of info on how to make this happen. Clearly you don't know what you are doing. Here's a link and feel free to make effective use of your search engine. Ignorance is not a defense.

No Dude, Don't you get it? Are you dense?
There's a 64 bit plugin. You don't need the wrapper for flash. Just make sure libflashplayer.so is located in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins.
How hard is that?
