Thanks for the howto. I just did an install on 32-bit Centos 5.4. There is a subtle error in the instructions that I’d like to correct: In Centos 5.4 it is not necessary to add the parameter “libcurl” to the install command referenced in section 4.b. If you attempt to install lubcurl, you’ll receive a “No pakcage libcurl available” error.

I now have the latest version of flash running on Centos 54. thanks.

Hi bob,

Thank you for this information. Curl packet on CentOS 5.4 32-bit should be curl not libcurl.

I fixed this part of instruction. Thanks again and nice to hear that you get latest version of Flash running on CentOS 5.4.

You totally got Flash working on my Fedora 12 distro. I’m running it in a VM on a Mac and YouTube is there now. Thank you. Why didn’t Fedora’s Flash instructions work?

Hi,

Nice to hear that you got Flash working, with my guide. :)

I’m not sure why the Fedora’s Flash instructions didn’t work…

You instructions work greatly, but I have no sound. I had to use the experimental method.

Thank you for this article! I installed Fedora 13 64 and the Adobe instructions didn’t work for me. But your Fedora 64 bit instructions did! I think the Adobe instructions don’t work because of the 64-bit…
