How to install flash player in fedora 15?

I installed like 3 different versions of flash player and tried on 2 browsers, its not working!!!!! I installed directly from adobes website. I installed the yum and the .rpm for (other) Linux but nothing is working. I restarted my browser like 20 times and my computer twice, I installed all updates as well. what is the problem?

There is: YUM for Linux, .tar.gz for Linux, and .rpm for other Linux. Will it make a difference if I download any one of those three?

I’m on a Linux compter in one of my college’s computer labs, and it’s saying it doesn’t have Flash Player. The computer is 64-bit and running Red Hat distribution. What version of Flash should I get from ? (if you can’t see the Linux options, they are):

YUM for Linux
.tar.gz for Linux
.rpm for Linux
.deb for Ubuntu 8.04+
APT for Ubuntu 9.04+
btw, I’ve had to "zip" a few tarballs for my programming class, so I know how to extract .tar.gz files. would that be the best option?

plz help me i cant decide which one to get
YUM for linux
.tar.gz for linux
.rpm for linux
.deb for Ubuntu 8.04+
im sorry but i didnt understand any of that :)

Adobe Flash Player for Linux?

Trying to install Flash for x86 it takes me to this page where I can download one of three ways, tar, rpm or YUM. Not sure which one to download they said to put it on the desktop; is one easier to work with than the other, also their directions for running the install were a bit vague, said to run


from the terminal but once I got there the terminal didn’t know what I was talking about. It may have done something in the background I wasn’t aware of and I may be missing a step.

Hi, Adobe Flash Player 10.1 has finally been released today. My question has to do with if I need to uninstall the previous version of Adobe Flash Player before I install the new version.

Also, when I install it what method is best;
Flash Player 10.1 for Linux (YUM)
Flash Player 10.1 for Linux (.tar.gz)
Flash Player 10.1 for Linux (.rpm)
Flash Player 10.1 for Linux (.deb)
APT for Ubuntu 9.04+

How do I install Flash Adobe onto Linux?

I have Ubuntu 6.06 and I’m trying to download Flash Adobe for Linux so I can watch videos. Unfortunately, I am not much of an expert with computers. When I am about to download, it gives me 3 versions of Flash to download. They are:
.tar.gz for Linux
.rpm for Linux
YUM for Linux

Also, once I download, I come to somethihow to use it, there is one folder, another folder in that, and then 2 more seperate folders. Out of those 2 folders, there is one folder in each. One says Flash plug-in, and the other one says doc.
Inside the Flash Plugin, there are 5 more new things, although they aren’t folders anymore. They are set up, READ ME, License,, and homecleanup.
I have no idea what any of the above is. If anyone could give me step by step instructions, even if it is extremely obvious, I would appreciate it.
Btw, I also only have 99% disc space. If that is a problem, I’ll start deleting as much as I can.
