Hi ...

You will need to add or modify your existing download repository's (for YUM)
Info for adding repository and installing with YUM is here:

There is a problem with fonts not being handled correctly in the current version of the flash plug-in and until Macromedia gets around to fixing the plug-in you'll need to do the following workaround.

# mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/
# ln -s /etc/X11/fs/config /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config

To use YUM, open a terminal, become root.


* To see a list of available software:
yum list available

* To install some software, you type:
yum install packagename

* To update some software, you type:
yum update packagename

* To see what updates are available, you can do:
yum check-update

* To search for a package, you can do:
yum search word
