Question install flash on FC6 x86_64 with Firefox.i386 gives arch error


Hi, guys I've installed FC6 x86_64 last night to try if it is more stable than the i386 on my system now I made it to install Firefox.i386 so I can use flash and java and all those plugins but when I want to install flashplayer I get an error.. see the code:
Code:
[root@DyingMuppet install_flash_player_7_linux]# ./flashplayer-installer

ERROR: Your architecture, \'x86_64\', is not supported by the
       Macromedia Flash Player installer.

[root@DyingMuppet install_flash_player_7_linux]#
looks like it isn't able to install flash at all because I use the x86_64 architecture..
does anyone know a solution for this?

Try browsing to site with flash objects so you get only the browser extension for your firefox, not the whole package. Worked for my Ubuntu at least, but then again it's debian-based..

when I browse to lets say http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/einstein7 It says I must install the macromedia flash plugin as usual but when I do that it looks like its being installed and it says it IS installed but when I refresh, firefox comes back with the plugin update and does not show any flash files...
