Help for Installing adobe flash on Fedora 14


Hi,
I just installed Fedora 14 and I need to install adobe flash. I found a few thread explaining how to, but when I type:
[jlb@xxx ~]$ sudo rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe...0-1.noarch.rpm

It tells me that I am not in the sudoers file. This is the message I got:
jlb is not in the sudoers file. This incident will be reported.

What is this error mean?
When I installed fedora yesterday, I was prompted to setup a root user password, which I did.

I also need to install schockwave player and it is the same.
Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks

Login as root in the terminal, using
Code:
$ su
Give the rootpassword
Then install the rpm
Code:
# rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe...0-1.noarch.rpm
Kind regards

thanks but it now tells me that package adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch is already installed.
When I tested it by going to youtube, i keep getting: you need to upgrade your adobe flash player...
I then go to adobe website, and it is the same version that I just installed.
Any ideas? thanks again

I have found that using the rpmfusion repositories to install flash works well as it will upgrade automatically when you run
Code:
#yum upgrade
Search google for rpmfusion and follow the directions for adding their repositories. Then install the flashplugin-nonfree package. That way you will always have the newest version and yum will handle any dependency issues.
