Theres specific instructions for downloading/installing the flashplayer - i.e. you have to accept their licence etc etc.This is the start location for getting it, you need to unpack it with the "tar" command and then theres a readme in the unpacked directory/file to tell you what you'll need to do/where to put it when you run the installer.

Hello Joe,

For Fedora there is a easier way to install Macromedia Flash, just download the flash-plugin-7.0.25-1.i386.rpm file from one of the mirrors found on

Then just run, as root rpm -Uvh flash-plugin-7.0.25-1.i386.rpm

If you have problems you can read this or post a new message here.

Best regards,
