Hi - just registered, so havnt looked around too
much, but i did a quick search and found nothing that helped me anyways, so heres the problem:
I have Mandrake ver 8.2
I am using Mozilla 0.9.8. - yes its old, but im only just beginning folks
I downloaded the FLASH plugin and saved it to the desktop: "install_flash_player_6_linux.tar.gz"
Points to remember:
I am a TOTAL NEWBIE
I have NO experience in Linux
I can just about open up the Command window (alt + F2)
When i try to "RUN" the command ./flashplayer-installer - all i get is an error message: "Unknown host" - what is the problem please ?
BTW - If your wondering why i am using Linux when i am a totall newbie - well, good question, but one answer is "im really sick and tired of M$".
