hi wildcat777
those are two different commands
the first is
Code:
uname -a -m -p
and the second is
Code:
cat /proc/cpuinfo
but you might want to pass it to the "more " or " less" command
Code:
cat /proc/cpuinfo | more
also this is an OLDER acer ? right ?
so it most likely has "limpus light" installed
limpus light is the #1 worst distro (- i right know can not think of one that is worse )

and if that is what is installed it is based on a old and no longer supported version of fedora ( the very long dead fedora 8)

if this is what is installed on the net book then installing flash and getting it to work might not be possible
that uname command should tell us ( and you )

@wildcat777: can you give me the result of this command:
Code:
ldd /usr/lib/opera/plugins/libflashplayer.so
I'm particularly interested in any lines that say 'not found'.

The file libnssutil3.so is a dependency of Flash and needed for it to operate correctly. I did a quick search on the internet for you and it would seem that on Linpus, the name of the package that contains this file is 'nss'. Hence you should be able to type the following as root to download and install the nss package and resolve this issue:
Code:
yum install nss

we really DO need to know the operating system
because if it is "Linpus light" then that --- " yum install nss" -- will not work


linpus might not have removed this program
Code:
gnome-system-monitor
that will tell you

and so would "uname"
Code:
 uname -o
-- or --
uname -a

Linpus (including Lite) was forked from Fedora 8, so if there is no yum you could issue the following command as root instead:

Code:
rpm -Uvh ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/archive.fedoraproject.org/fedora/linux/updates/8/i386.newkey/nss-3.12.2.0-1.1.fc8.i386.rpm

Hi johnvv 1st i typed in gnome system monitor and it brought up a menu with System/processes/resources/filesystems in it.
So i chose systems(hope that was the correct one)and heres what it said:
Local host:
Distributor id:n/a
release release n/a (codename:n/a)
kernal linux 2.623.9lw
Hardware: memory 492.9mib
Processor 0:intel(r) atom(tm) cpu n270 @1.60ghz:
Processor 1:intel(r) atom(tm) cpu n270 @1.60ghz:
System status: available disk space 3.1gib.
Ok then i exited the menu that gnome system monitor had feteched up and in terminal i typed in uname -o and got message
Gnu/linux. and when i typed in uname -a i got message
86 i136 Gnu/linux.

Are you sure you typed this correctly. i.e. you didn't type rmp or some other variant. rpm is a standard command on Fedora based distros, so it would be very odd for it not to be present. I must admit I am slightly suspicious because your 'error' has a lower case 'u' and I asked that you type with an upper case 'U'. Typing exactly what I wrote is important so it would be best to copy and paste it.

also to help get the information that John VV requested, could you also type the following and report back the result:

Code:
cat /etc/linpus-release

Where you connected to the internet when you did this? Because in case it wasn't clear. You need to be.

Hi ruario you were right i must have typed it wrong,anyway i copy and pasted it into the terminal whilst rooted and got following message:
Error:failed dependencies:
nspr=>4.7 is needed by nss-3.12.2.0-1.1.fc8.i386
In answer to your other questions. I was connected to the internet.
Also i copy and pasted that other command you asked me to do cat /etc/linpus-release it gave
Linpus linux lite
v 1.0.9.E

Ok, then try this (as root):
Code:
rpm -Uvh ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/archive.fedoraproject.org/fedora/linux/updates/8/i386.newkey/nspr-4.7.3-1.fc8.i386.rpm
and if it works try the earlier command again
Code:
rpm -Uvh ftp://ftp.pbone.net/mirror/archive.fedoraproject.org/fedora/linux/updates/8/i386.newkey/nss-3.12.2.0-1.1.fc8.i386.rpm
