Flash for firefox on 64bit


Hello,

I finaly got my internet working on linux so i tried installing the flash binary for mozilla firefox ( i just love online flash games ) but i got an error wich i cant fix myself. Below is the error.
Im running Fedora Core 2 for AMD64. Can anyone help me with getting my flash sorted?

ERROR: Your architecture, \'x86_64\', is not supported by the
Macromedia Flash Player installer.

Re: Flash for firefox on 64bit

Like you can see in the error message:

ERROR: Your architecture, 'x86_64', is not supported by the
Macromedia Flash Player installer.

The "problem" is your processor what the message don't say is that the only "thing" that don't support your processor is the flash player installer or the flash plugin itself... try to put it there manually copy the plugin wherever it is in the folder to $firefox/plugins/
