I have Flash 10 installed on my F10 box and had no issues there.
I have a laptop with Slackware 10.2 that I cannot seem to get it installed on. I downloaded the file and installed and the install seemed to go ok with no errors. I specified Firefox 2.0, Seamonkey and Opera and when I go to test on the flash test page I am told that I dont have flash installed. I also tried to install from Firefox and let the browser download and install the plugin automatically. I get the messsage that it has been isntalled but I need to reopen the browser, which I do, then I go back and am still told its not installed. I checked the minimum requirements and everything is met so I am at a loss since I am getting no errrors. My only thought was is there a minimum kernel requirement thats not listed? Since I am using a 2.4.x kernel on my Slackware machine and a 2.6.x on my Fedora box.
Any suggestions are appreciate. Thanks in advance.
When I installed and specified /usr/lib/mozilla I was given the error to specify a valid install dir so I installed to the specific dir of each browser. I did, however, manually copy over libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib/mozilla just for kicks and still no difference. I may be able to get Flash 9 installed but unfortunatly need Flash 10 on this computer instead. The system requirements only list RHEL 5, OpenSuse 11 and Ubuntu 7.10 or later but I'm sure they will run on others. I belive all of those run on 2.6.x kernel so maybe that is the issue. Guess I will need to update my kernel on this machine and see if that fixes it. If there are any other ideas, let me know.
