The begining of the newb questions. I downloaded the shockwave-flash addin and have it sitting on my desktop. There were two types of files available one ended in tar (I believe) and the other was rpm, which was the one I got. I know I have to (maybe
install it from terminal mode, but I saw two sets of instructions one using a one step process using just rpm and another 2 step using the same rpm command and then a yum command. Questions, when downloading updates/new addon's ect. is there one type of file that is easier to install than another, will they both work but with different install procedures? Yum didn't seem to be installed on my Linux but I believe I got that installed now. So how do I proceed? This is with Ubuntu Linux.
