Problem in Installing Adobe flash player 10 in linux mandriva 2008


Hello,
I am using a Mandriva 2008 on my machine... now i updated the firefox browser to the latest version i.e. 3.5.7 and i tried to install Adobe Flash player 10 directly from the net... but it is giving me an error "Installation of Plugin Failed !"

so i tried to manually install it by downloading "install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz" from their site. But this contains something called "libflashplayer.so" which i don't know how to work with...
Kindky advise on how should i get this one manually installed...

Please Help,
Thnaks in advance,
JN

Locate the plugins directory for firefox and copy the .so into it, on my system it's /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins. You could also download the rpm version and try that

cheers

Download adobe flash.tar.gz from official site.
Code:
cp libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
