CentOS 5 and Adobe Flash Plugin not working


Please help!
I just installed CentOS 5 on my computer and Mozilla is asking for a plugin on my homepage. I went to install it Manually and it still doesn't work. Ive Googled several fixes but have had no luck. Plus, Im also needing codecs for audio. Please forgive me if I sound ignorant to commands and all...I'm still learning to Navigate around. Any suggestions? Thanks

Add epel repos for centos

Code:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/EPEL
and then from terminal, as root

Code:
yum clean all
yum update
yum install xmms-mp3

or

yum install mplayer
hope this will make those packages available which are not in official centos repos

Cheers!!

Did you install the flash plugin RPM?

I have this:
# rpm -qa | grep flash
flash-plugin-10.0.22.87-release
#

And then copy the plugin into your home mozilla folder
$ cp /usr/lib/flash-plugin/libflashplayer.so .mozilla/plugins

I will dig up which plugins provides the audio...

Thanks for the quick responses....the above didnt work for me, got this...did I do something wrong?

[root@localhost ~]# # rpm -qa | grep flash
[root@localhost ~]# flash-plugin-10.0.22.87-release
bash: flash-plugin-10.0.22.87-release: command not found

always remember, a command always starts with $ or # remaining are console outputs.

check

Code:
rpm -qa | grp flash-plugin
and see it it show you the package installed .. else it will not generate any out put..

Code:
rpm -q flash-plugin
this would tell you "flash-plugin is not installed" is it's not installed.

did you add epel repos?

Cheers!!
