Linux Flash Player


Hello,

I am currently running:

Linux
2.6.24-1-amd64
(Linux Debian Lenny)

on

GenuineIntel
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz [Family 6 Model 15 Stepping 11]

I am trying to install:

Flash Player which is located:

/home/gandolfo/Desktop/install_flash_player_9_linux/flashplayer-installer

I am following the requirements for installation at:

http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/downl...&promoid=BUIGP

The version I downloaded is:

Adobe Flash Player version 9.0.124.0
.tar.gz for Linux (x86) |. 3MB


which should be compatible with my computer architecture.

When I run the command in the root terminal:
./flashplayer-installer

I get the error messsage:


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


This is obviously incorrect as the download states it is x86 and my architecture is x86.

Any ideas?

read the message: x86_64 is not supported. while x86_64 is backwards compatible with x86, it is not the same. one way to get flash on a 64bit system is to install the 32bit version of your browser, including all libs needed separately. I am not sure how you would proceed, but there are plenty of instructions out there.

32 bit version of Mozilla

Where can I download a 32 bit version of Mozilla Firefox, Iceweasel etc. I suppose I can go to the Firefox website but how do I know it is 32 bit and will it run on my 64 bit Linux Debian application?

Regards,

Nevica
