might be selinux.

"System" > "Administration" > "Security Level and Firewall". Enter your root password and click "ok". On the "SELinux" tab click on "Modify SELinux Policy", click on "Compatibility" to open it and tick the check box next to "Allow the use of shared libraries with Text Relocation". Click "ok". Reboot your machine to implement the new SELinux policy.

I did that but I have yet to install flash. I have flash downloaded but when it says to type ./flashplayer-installer, that doesnt work for me. Is there another way to type that to install? Im running fc5 64-bit. Thanks

Hello:
There is no 64bit Flash....so unless you have a 32bit Firefox installed on your x86_64 FC5 you are out of luck. :mad:
