  1. Hey,
    just finished installing flash (64) according to this guide,
    when opening chrome I still have no flash :\

    [[email protected] ~]$ lsb_release -a
    LSB Version: :core-4.0-amd64:core-4.0-noarch
    Distributor ID: Fedora
    Description: Fedora release 14 (Laughlin)
    Release: 14
    Codename: Laughlin
    [[email protected] ~]$ uname -a
    Linux mtcomp #1 SMP Mon Oct 18 23:57:44 UTC 2010 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    any ideas?

  2. 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.

  3. 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?


    • 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?

  4. 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.

  5. The Experimental tag

    “””””Experimental: Install Adobe’s Real 64-bit Flash Player 10.2 “Square” (Preview 3 Version) on Fedora 14 / 13 (x86_64) CentOS 5.5 (x84_64), Red Hat (RHEL) 5.5 (x86_64) and Red Hat (RHEL) 6 (x86_64)”””””””

    works for me….


    • 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… :)

  6. I am getting error like this

    [[email protected] install]# yum check-update

  7. Hey Jr, thanks for maintaining such a useful and informative website. Being a new linux user, your tutorials are clear and easy to follow. You’re Adobe Reader & 64 bit Flash install instructions worked flawlessly for me. Keep up the good work!
