    Setup Oracle public yum repository according to

    Then try the following:

    # rpm -ivh
    # rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
    # yum install firefox
    # yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper.x86_64 nspluginwrapper.i686 \
    alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686 libcurl.i686

    It may prompt to install 79 packages (210 MB)

    Then open Firefox and type "about:plugins". It should list Flash:
    Version: Shockwave Flash 10.2 r159

    The above worked for me on a default install of Oracle Linux 6.

    Access Oracle support (metalink) is working. If it hangs i.e. 90 %, click the reload button.

    But perhaps you might not want to do this on a server system. It's better to do this using your regular Desktop system.
