FlashPlayer & SUSE 10.0 64bit architecture support


Hi,

That is more a "rhethoric" question.
When Macromedia is going to give us FlashPlayer for 64 bit system??
Whenever I try to install it I always get the same message :

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

Or maybe, there is somebody out there, who just did it? If so, HOW???

I installed FlashPlayer following those instructions and everything worked fine. Give it a try.

Hi niztec,

How did you install flash player? After extracting the file and trying to start it, I only get this message: "ERROR: Your architecture, \'x86_64\', is not supported by the Macromedia Flash Player installer. and then the installation stopped.

If you look at my link. I opened the shell script in text editor ie kate, emacs and removed two sections


Then I removed two sections of the flashplayer-installer script

# the architecture is not supported
exit_cpu () {
echo ""
echo "ERROR: Your architecture, '$1', is not supported by the"
echo " $PRODUCT installer."
echo ""
exit 1
}

and

# check architecture
TEMPARCH=`uname -m`
case $TEMPARCH in
i[3456]86)
ARCH=i386
;;
*)
exit_cpu $TEMPARCH
;;
esac

Then save the file and run the modified version of the script

Hi niztec,

I was busy, now I am back here.
I was thinking about Flash Player. You see, Konqueror is not a problem. I do not know whether it is using flash plug in or something else, but I can play video and/or radio there. The problem is Firefox. Somehow I can not get it working even with your suggestions. I will try it again. Will see if it will work.

thanks for now. I will let you know about the results.

One thing you might want to make sure if you followed all my instructions is when the flashplayer script asks you for the location of firefox. I had mine in the /home folder. Suse by default i believe keeps it in the /opt/mozilla folder. Not sure if you got that far but if you did maybe that will help

Try this: take the checkmark off from YAST. I think that will uninstall it. Then, go back in and put the checkmark back. Maybe that will fix it?
