when extract install_flash_player_10_linux.tar.gz you will get libflashplayer.so

you have to place that "libflashplayer.so" file into the /usr/lib directory.

Hello,

The libflashplayer.so file is no tar archive so you don't have to process it with tar. If you place the file in the correct directory you should be able to play videos like from YouTube in your browser.

Kind regards,

Eric

YUM is package installation utility and you should already have it installed on your system. just type
Code:
rpm -qa yum
in a terminal, and with root privilegies. It will show yhat version of you you have installed.

then download http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux...0-1.noarch.rpm and install it with
Code:
rpm -ivh adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
also from terminal, and with root privilegies. that will install you adobe repository. next install flash player with
Code:
yum install flash-plugin
also in terminal and with root privilegies.
