elaborating more....note all the posts about fedora 10/11 issues with dvd/cd, installs hanging,etc
nope, I'm not putting that on my pc.
OpenSUSE has flash issues, not good unless one likes tracking down issues...
Why have a Honda, when being that it's all free I'll take the porche's, and caddies too
so, that's why I stick with slackware/ubuntu-8.04/tinycore and a few others that don't have issues.

OpenSuse has flash issues? How can a distro have flash issues? Browsers have flash issues, programmes which use flash have flash issues.

Not to mention the fact the core of these programmes are identical, the differences are where or how the binaries are installed.

To say OpenSuse has flash issues is like saying that Porsche of yours has a tear in it, when you actually mean the underside of the seat cover material has a tear on it.

well I had suse 11 and it was simple chmod +x flashplayer-installer idk why it's doing this but something interesting thought if I go to the firefox website download firefox then extract it in the same place I did flashplayer (/home/linux/Documents) it "seems" to install though when I go to youtube or something still nothing also after the installation I get the message Please log out of this session and log in for the changes to take effect...isn't this a windows thing?

And I don't understand that last point. But no, according to that, on suse, the libraries are in ~/.mozilla

In the Mepis liveCD, there is an "aufs" boot time option that uses an aufs (combining a ram disk with the ISO filesystem) for every file directory in the root filesystem (rather than using ram for just the directories you normally can change while running a liveCD).

Because everything is then writable, it acts much more like an installed system, including the ability to update, install and configure software. Everything you do is thrown away on reboot. But until reboot, it acts like an installed system. That is great for tests such as you requested.

I have no idea which other distribution liveCDs have similar features.

I'm pretty sure most liveCDs normally use an aufs in a more limited way to make selected portions of the filesystem appear writable. So just using an aufs isn't the feature I mean. The "aufs" boot option in Mepis means exanding the aufs for almost everything.

nope still nothing I get WARNING: /home/linux/Documents/install_flash_player_10_linux/~/.mozilla is not a directory. and according to your link why doesn't it just automatically set up a directory? and as for my last comment it was kind of a joke because windows make you reboot everytime you do something lol

Because it needs to be in the same directory as the browser.

Try This

/home/linux/Documents/install_flash_player_10_linux/.mozilla

You used this:

Quote:
/home/linux/Documents/install_flash_player_10_linux/~/.mozilla
where the "~" character is simply used to denote the full path before ".mozilla"

well I ask is because with suse 11 it asks if you would like to create a directory then yes and it installs without a hitch
