Bummer, I was hoping to get flash running on my AMD64. Its the only thing left to say good riddance to Win$%^&. If you have suggestions let me know.

[root@kahntop /]# lsb_release -a
bash: lsb_release: command not found
[root@kahntop /]# uname -a
Linux kahntop 2.6.35.11-83.fc14.x86_64 #1 SMP Mon Feb 7 07:06:44 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
[root@kahntop /]# lsb_release -a
bash: lsb_release: command not found

Tried others to with no luck. What could I be missing?

Thanks

Hi Kahn,

So you followed this guide exactly and can’t get Flash working on Fedora 14 x86_64?

Hi ptyone,

What method you use installing 64-bit flash?

Check about:plugins page on Chrome, do you see Flash there?

Iv’e installed it exactly as the guide says.
And actually when I checked about:plugins as you suggested I cant see any flash plugin there.

Hello!

First I want to thank you because this worked on my RHEL6 installation.

The next day of the installation there was a flash update, after that firefox just stays there and then says a script is not working and I have the option of waiting or quit it.

When I go to about:plugins I have 2 Flash Plugins. Flash doesn’t work if i disable one or the other.

Should I go through your tutorial again? or is there another way of making it work?

Thanks!
Vero

Hi Vero,

It sounds strange that there is two versions of the flash after the update. Could you send more info about your plugins or even screenshot from about:plugins page?

This doesn’t work at all for me. I have a HP 6700 laptop with Fedora 14 i-686 32 bit installed, and step 2 does not work because my terminal replies “–ivh: unknown option”
But I think that I have a different problem because no video of any kind works, and Firefox keeps asking for me to install plugins which it then cannot find, and you-tube prompts me to install adobe flash player, and when I do; adobe tells me that flash player is already installed. I have already removed gnash as someone here has suggested, and I have previously installed vlc from rpm.
I have in the past suspected that the problem was the video driver, so I searched for and found directions for replacing the driver and did it. I ended up having to re-install linux twice because the first re-install failed. I still think that I have a driver problem but I am a bit gun-shy now! I came to this page in the hopes that yum will tell me specifically what is wrong if I followed these directions.
I had none of these problems when Fedora 12 was my O.S. So far as I am concerned; Fedora 14 is a regression. BTW: I had done a clean install of F-14, not an upgrade from F-12.

Hi crash-override,

Nice to hear that this is also working with Fedora 15 beta 2. I tested this earlier with Fedora 15 Beta 1 and Google Chrome and yes it was working… :)
