View Full Version : Installing Adobe Flash SUCCESSFULLY

Don't you hate it when you have to reinstall everything because GRUB gets busted by openSuSE? Well, that's exactly what happened to me, and one of the things I had to reinstall was, of course Shockwave Flash. In this tutorial, I'll show you how to install Flash.

1. Go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/?promoid=JZEFT and select YUM package. This is just an RPM that adds the Adobe repository to yum.

2. Because you just installed the YUM rpm, you can now go ahead and check for updates...

sudo yum upgrade
3. After you get the updates, run this:

yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper alsa-plugins-pulseaudio libcurl
This is one of the few times where it is reccommended that you restart after installing something in Linux. Go ahead and restart.
Have fun with Adobe Flash!

You don't need to install nspluginwrapper, and in fact it can mess things up if you do install it.
