Download the yum installer from adobe website, use yum to install the repo.

Then,
CODE
yum install flash-plugin
That should work.

Just a note, you do not need nspluginwrapper since 64-bit flash plugin is available.

Just a follow-up question.

I've downloaded Firefox 11 as a tar.bz2 and installed it in my home directory. What is the procedure for installing the flash plugin when we are using this method of installing Firefox?

I'm on SL 6.2, 64bit.

Andrew.

To answer my own question:

Make sure rpmforge repos are enabled. Then as root:

QUOTE

yum install flash-plugin


Then as your own user:

QUOTE

cd ~/.mozilla/plugins
ln -s /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so .

Instead of using RPMForge, I'd grab the flash plugin from flash.com and install it manually.
Reason is that RPMForge has the same one, but with several additional packages (for dependency reasons huh.gif ).
