Unhappy Fedora 10: E: Couldn't Find Package <X>


All:

I am running fedora 10. First of all, I checked how YouTube runs. Finding that the video isn't palying, I used the command

su -c 'yum install flashplugin'

to install the flash plug in. It went very well. Now youtube VIDEO runs but the audio doesn't. Hence, I used,

su -c 'yum install libflashsupport'

and it said,

Setting up Install Process
Parsing package install arguments
No package libflashsupport available.
Nothing to do

Then, I tried to install apt. The installation went fine. Wanting to install Synaptic, I then used 'apt-get -y install synaptic' and that gave the same error as above. Then, went on to install 'yum install unrar' and that too gave the same error!

I am really looking forward to some help on this regard!

Thanks in advance!

Adobe has their own Linux Flash player. You just need to add their repo.

Thanks SlowCoder!

I am sorry but I am new to fedora. I really don't know how to add repos. My yum.conf looks like this.

[main]
cachedir=/var/cache/yum
keepcache=0
debuglevel=2
logfile=/var/log/yum.log
exactarch=1
obsoletes=1
gpgcheck=1
plugins=1
installonly_limit=3

# This is the default, if you make this bigger yum won't see if the metadata
# is newer on the remote and so you'll "gain" the bandwidth of not having to
# download the new metadata and "pay" for it by yum not having correct
# information.
# It is esp. important, to have correct metadata, for distributions like
# Fedora which don't keep old packages around. If you don't like this checking
# interupting your command line usage, it's much better to have something
# manually check the metadata once an hour (yum-updatesd will do this).
# metadata_expire=90m

# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d


I would greatly appreciate any help!

Thanks!

Go to their site and download their Linux installer. Execute it as root and it will automagically install the repo for you. Then all you need to do is 'yum install flash-plugin'.
