Thank you for your thoughts.
Its an Asus eeepc netbook and from Control Center it is running ... KDE version 3.4.2 Release 188.8.131.52 - eeepc.
And yes it is to load Flash Player for the resident Firefox.
I did get something in that area with this info:
try getting the RPM from the adobe website.
Download it and save it to the desktop then run it with package manager. When ever possible use RPMs to install (or yum) they work 99% of the time.
also try opening a terminal session
su root <enter>
yum provides *flash* <enter>
it should give you a list and look for something
yum install macromediaflash.i386.rpm <enter>
and watch the fun...
yum will resolve dependencies for you automatically...
I cannot find package manager on the machine but can download any of the Adobe Flash Linux programs (.rpm etc.) from their site. Its just that then I dont know what to do. It seems .rpm files are best to use but I am no wiser. Help!
