Fedora 10_64- Trouble with Adobe Flash


I just can't seem to be able to get this flash player installed, despite the fact that I have done my best to read guides and follow instructions on how to do it. I need to have it to be able to watch streaming video and play a few flash based games. Thus far I have been following the instructions of this guide:

http://www.overclock.net/linux-unix/...are-guide.html

I installed the Yum package for adobe from their website, then installed the following pagackages:

flash-plugin
AdobeReader_enu

And all the packages it told me I needed to have as well.

I ran the following root command "mozilla-plugin-config -i -g -v". When It tried to search for the nspluginwrapper.x86_64 and nspluginwrapper.i386 packages nothing came up. I am at a loss here.

Also, unrelated, but when I enable add block for firefox small icons on my forums disapear, and I lose the ability to select options such as "edit" and "quote" (they disapear). Disabling the addon makes them come back.

Thanks for any help.

No need for nspluginwrapper anymore, get the 64-bit version found here:
http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10.html

Extract the tgz and put 'libflashplayer.so' in '~/.mozilla/plugins' or '/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins' and it will work.

I have that file but I can't seem to find either directory. I put it in the "search" and pressed extract but that doesn't seem to have worked.

Ok, I needed to get some updates and after that finding the directory was easy. Only problem now is firefox crashes about every 30 seconds when flash video is playing.... I will have to look into that.
