the adobe reop is VERY VERY
notorious for being off line and causing problems
disable it !!!
change the "enabled=1" to "enabled=0" in the repo text file in /etc/yum.repo.d folder
then use yum's " --enablerepo=adobe" to turn it on ( temporally )to update flash
Also the "fast-mirror" is known to cause all kinds of annoying little problems all the time ( hence the "annoying" part )
unless you REALLY need it
i would recommend you not use it
But if you want then use it -- your choice .
Also Be Aware that -- Fedora 16 will hit it's END OF LIFE on Feb. 08 2013
in just over one month
at that time there will never be any more support for fedora 16 -- it will be basically dead.
time to upgrade to fedora 17
or after Jan. 08 fedora 18
as to "Snark1994"
post about SUDO
fedora By Default
dose not use it !!!
Fedora used "su" and "su -"
It was deemed a "too big" of a security risk and was disabled by default .
also do not just try to install some named program
SEARCH for it first
-- it might have a slightly different name --
fedora has "chromium" in the base repos
and if you add googles repo then chrome is in that one
try as a normal user and NOT root
---- your root password when asked for -----
yum search chrome
then from the list - copy/paste "google-chrome-stable"
your "echo do all for SUDO is the problem
fedora dose not use sudo
please use "su -" and do not forget the blank space and the dash
