Flash Player 10 not working on opera 9.6 RHEL4 WS

i have RHEL4 distro and i use opera 9.6 browser on it. i have trouble viewing sites requiring flash player.

so i started by downloading flash player10.tar.gz from adobe website
i intalled in usr/lib/opera/plugins but it did not got detected by opera.

i searched on net and found out RHEL4 does not support flashplayer10 due to the absence of following dependencies:-

> => not found
> => not found
> => not found

What am i supposed to do now????

These libraries are from mozilla and come with any mozilla product, such as firefox, thunderbird etc. I don't think that the flash plugin depends on these libraries.
Anyway you can d/l firefox and if you don't want to use it as browser and insist on opera, copy the libraries in /usr/lib, run
and see if it works.

You can also do a search of one of those libraries here, put a check next to RHEL 4 and Other.
You'll find there is no RHEL 4 package with those libraries, but there are some noarch. packages that provide all those missing libraries. These packages are listed below. They also have a long list of dependencies listed on the next web page you will find when you click on one of these package links.
You may want to try installing one, if rpm complains about too many missing dependencies, you can back down if you want.
You can also try finding archived (older) versions of Adobe flash at their web site if that's what it takes for that distribution.
