I have a 32-bit OS w/Suse 9.1 and need flash. I only see 64-bit available. I am wondering if this is going to be a problem. Anyone have some good info? Can't play Farmville without it. Thanks. Need a neighbor?

Good time to think about openIndiana too. Looked good from my limited test.

Suse 9.1 was end of life in 2006. I would strongly recommend to install a newer version. You will get no bugfixes and, more important, security updates if you use this outdated version.

yes what he said, and welcome to Linux.

http://software.opensuse.org/111/en

you can get the newest vs of OpenSuse there if that is the distro you prefer to stick with. Otherwise I suggest looking into maybe Fedora or some of the lighter distros that are not as large of a system resource hog as the SuSe line is.
