attempted to manually install flash player for firefox in KDE fedora 9


Here is the error, and I'm having lots of trouble with downloading and installing any new packages:

It says no GPG signature, force?

try getting the RPM from the adobe website.
http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates/
Download it and save it to the desktop then run it with package manager. When ever possible use RPMs to install (or yum) they work 99% of the time.

also try opening a terminal session
su root <enter>
yum provides *flash* <enter>

it should give you a list and look for something
like macromediaflash.i386.rpm

then type
yum install macromediaflash.i386.rpm <enter>
and watch the fun...

yum will resolve dependencies for you automatically...

I used install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz . There was a shell script. I ran it and my flash player was installed in Firefox. The script is interactive and it's done in seconds.

When I type
Code:
yum provides *flash*
it says:
Code:
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit
removing mirrorlist with no valid mirrors: //var/cache/yum/updates/mirrorlist.txt
Error: Cannot retrieve repository metadata (repomd.xml) for repository: updates. Please verify its path and try again
it seems all my problems are related if you'll look at my other posts
