    1. Worked perfect. I haven’t tried the 64bit deal yet, I really don’t see a need. But, I may try that soon. Thank you for taking the time to post this.

    2. I followed these instructions on a fresh install of Fedora 14 x86_64, but I was unable to boot after, until I booted into single user mode and exited at the prompt, whereupon it did boot into the gui desktop.

      Then however, although Firefox 3.6 would launch, none of the menus worked, until I yum removed flash-plugin, ndiswrapper and all the other stuff that came with it (by yum remove *i686), and now Firefox appears to be working normally again.

      Not sure if this method is worth the risk of hosing your FC14 system for the sake of playing Flash, so perhaps a warning/disclaimer is warranted at top of page ?

      • Hi David,

        I have tested this guide few times with Fedora 14 Beta 64-bit (x86_64). And I just tested this guide again with just installed Fedora 14 64-bit (x86_64) and it works very smoothly in my computers. I added new screenshot Adobe Flash Player 32-bit installed on Fedora 14 x86_64.

        So it’s very hard to believe that your boot problems is caused by the installation of the Adobe Flash Player. Could you give more specific information about boot errors?

        • Hi,

          I sifted through the logs and did not spot anything obvious.

          Suffice to say that when I rebooted immediately after the attempted Flash install per your instructions (because Flash was not loading in Firefox and I thought a reboot might help), it launched from Grub into a black screen (the display went into standby mode), and all disk activity ceased. This happened on two consecutive attempted boots.

          I was then able to recover as described (boot in single mode, “exit” at the command prompt brought up the GUI), but Firefox did not work properly (it would launch, but menus didn’t work). So I uninstalled Flash, ndiswrapper etc (again, as described in my previous post) and after that rebooted as normal with Firefox working again.

          I thought at the time the 32-bit Flash install method brought on board an alarming number of 32-bit (i686) critical system components, and wondered just how that was going to work out. I’ve installed Flash before on several, different 64-bit distros over the past 2-3 years, and never noticed it bringing all this other stuff.

          I’ve also read since on the Fedora Forums that no one is having much luck with Flash on Fedora 14, trying all the usual methods, including some very like yours, if not identical to. So your success appears to be an exception.

          Thanks

          • Hi again,

            Sounds pretty strange that this would have caused such problems for you. But of course, everything is possible.

            I tried this a few times on different machines, and everything seems to be working normally. Also, I found the discussion on the Fedora Forum, where somebody have successfully installed Adobe Flash Player 32-bit on Fedora 14 64-bit using almost same method.

            I updated my experimental method to installing Adobe Flash Player 10.2 preview (native 64-bit version) on Fedora 14/13 x86_64. So this is maybe better method for you if 32-bit Flash i686 dependencies cause problems for your computer. You just have to download flash, extract package and copy libflashplayer.so to /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ directory.

    5. Thanks for the detailed info!
      One comment, which may be crucial! In my particular situation flash-plugin from adobe did not work unless I removed(!) gnash-plugin.
      I.e. both gnash-plugin and flash-plugin were installed. When both enabled, gnash tried to do the job and usually failed to play files.
      After disabling gnash-plugin, situation changed: errors from gnash-plugin disappeared, but files were NOT played.
      Only ‘yum remove gnash-plugin’ did the job.
      So, in short, one might need to REMOVE alternative flash plugins.
      Good luck

        Thank you for sharing this good information with us. So if somebody have problems with gnash-plugin and Adobe Flash Player then use Alex method. :)

    7. I am using the preview version of Flash 10.2 64 bit and videos play fine. The issue I have is that audio sounds bad, a lot of clipping and noise. Audio from other applications is fine, only flash video has this problem.

      • Hi Carlos,

        In fact, sound problems are known problems with the Flash 10.2 64 bit preview, and can only be fixed by Adobe.

    8. Hi again,

      I tried the 64-bit plugin and it seems to work.

      Thanks

      • Hi again David,

        Really nice to hear that you got Flash to work on your Fedora.

    9. Had trouble on YouTube videos not playing ‘Error..” and many web pages being not found with FireFox both 4-beta and 3.6.13. Not a Flash problem after all. A friend had me try a public DNS server pair in Network settings like Google’s 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 with Method:”Automatic addresses only” on network settings-wired-IPv4 settings. Hope it helps a few like me that were 6 releases back on OS. Your examples help give me a start at seeing what is going on with adding software.

    12. 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.

      bash: lsb_release: command not found

      [[email protected] /]# lsb_release -a

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

      Thanks

    14. Hi Kahn,

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