    3. Everytime I do a:

      # yum install -y rpm-devel.i686

      I get the error message

      Transaction Check Error:
      package sqlite-3.6.22-1.fc13.x86_64 (which is newer than sqlite-3.6.20-1.fc12.i686) is already installed

      What can I do about this?

      Thanks in advance. Great tutorial by the way.

      • Hi Dre,

        It seems that you are using Rawhide (Fedora 13, fc13) repository for sqlite.x86_64 package.

        So install rpm-devel.i686 from rawhide repository, using following command:

        
        yum --enablerepo=rawhide install rpm-devel.i686 
        

        Maybe this will solve the problem?

        Glad to hear you liked this tutorial.

        • Hi. Thanks for the help. I tried the command but there was another error:

          –> Finished Dependency Resolution
          Error: Package: abrt-1.0.8-2.fc12.x86_64 (@updates)
          Requires: librpm.so.0()(64bit)

          You could try using –skip-broken to work around the problem
          You could try running: rpm -Va –nofiles –nodigest

          I tried the “–skip-broken” command and it installed some stuff. I tried installing Adobe Air 1.5 but I got this error:

          Error loading the runtime (libnss3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

          With that not working I then downloaded and installed Adobe Air beta 2 w/o a problem. I also downloaded the Tweetdeck air file and tried installing using Adobe Air beta 2 but nothing happens.

          • One possible workaround is simply remove abrt (Automatic Bug Reporting Tool) package and try again.

            
            yum remove abrt
            

            You can install abrt back (later), simply with following command:

            
            yum install abrt
            

            Missing libnss3.so indicates that nss-devel.i686 packages is missing. You can’t get Adobe AIR 1.5 or 2.0 probably working properly if some of following packages are not installed successfully:

            
            yum install ld-linux.so.2 gtk2-devel.i686 libdbus-glib-1.so.2 \
            libhal.so.1 rpm-devel.i686 libXt.so.6 gnome-keyring-devel.i686 \
            libDCOP.so.4 libxml2-devel.i686 nss-devel.i686 libxslt.i686 xterm

            • Woohoo!!! It worked.

              Am now a happy laptop owner using Fedora 12 64bit with Adobe Air and Tweedeck.

              Thanks a heap, man!

            • Oh, yeah. I encountered another problem. When I try to install abrt I get this error messsage again:

              Aside from that. Everything works great.

                  I used some of your articles in posting a guide to getting Fedora 12 working for Dell Studio XPS 16.

      • Hi El1iP3S01D,

        I updated this guide to work also with Fedora 13 – x86_64 and I get Adobe AIR 2 RC and TweetDeck (as example) easily work with Fedora 13 – x86_64.

    5. Thanks for a very informative article. I first attempted to install Air 1.5, but ran into the problem with the Air-installer requesting gnome-keyring or kwallet. I couldn’t find a proper workaround for this – so eventually I opted to try Air 2.0 BETA. It worked immediately on my Fedora 13 system!

      • Hi Carl Martin,

        Nice to hear that you get it working. :)

        I believe that the Adobe Air 2.0 is in many case a better choice than the Adobe Air 1.5.

    6. Am I going crazy or are the code instructions for to “Install Fedora 12…” and “Install Fedora 13…” identical? Are they supposed to be?

      • Hi russ,

        Yes, they are the same, but you should take into account the point If These packages do Not install, then try the following:. Did you try it?

        Or what is your problem?

        • Hi JR, thanks for the reply.

          Following the directions to “Install Fedora 12” worked; the packages installed. When I entered the bash again (this time for “Install Fedora 13” instructions) it returned that the packages were already installed and “Nothing to do”. I was expecting it to do something since the directions said to enter it again. I assumed that it failed. Was I wrong, did it succeed?

          I attempted the “If packages do not install…” instructions, but get the message, “-bash: [updates-f13-i386] command not found”

          Any thoughts?

          • Hi again russ,

            If you got all the following packages installed:

            
            yum install ld-linux.so.2 gtk2-devel.i686 libdbus-glib-1.so.2 \
            libhal.so.1 rpm-devel.i686 libXt.so.6 gnome-keyring-devel.i686 \
            libDCOP.so.4 libxml2-devel.i686 nss-devel.i686 libxslt.i686 xterm
            

            Then it succeed!

            And then you can continue the installation normally.
