I am running Fedora 10, and have been one of those lucky individuals whose system worked completely fine from the start. My current problem is with flash. Within the past week when I follow friends' links to videos on Facebook I am told I need to download the latest flash. So the first time I followed the link to the flash site and downloaded. Videos still didn't work. On youtube and everywhere else they do. So today, after reading some posts, I went to the flash site to see what version of flash I have installed. It tells me it's flash 10,0,15,3 . I go to try download latest version and it tells me that 10.0.22.87 is the latest and I click to download and when I go to install package I am told it is already installed. It would appear as though the flash site is having me download the same package I already have. I have tried multiple times and am unable to upgrade. Is there another way I could upgrade. Thanks in advance for the help.Sorry about my ignorance, but school leaves me little spare time to study up on linux.
You could try downloading the tar.gz file from adobe.com and extract the so file, replacing your current so file (wherever that may be) which is the flash plugin. Search for a file on your system with "flash" and ".so" in the file name.
For instance on Debian it is /etc/alternatives/flash-mozilla.so. In other distributions it may be in a plugins directory somewhere inside your home folder (such as ~/.mozilla/plugins/) or somewhere in /etc or /usr.
