oracle linux ver 6, when i go to the metalink site it says i need adobe flashplayer, i download the flashplayer, i picked the .tar.gz and the .rpm version and it says it installs ok, but i can't get into metalink ??
i've done everythin but reboot ???
Setup Oracle public yum repository according to http://public-yum.oracle.com/
Then try the following:
# rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
# rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
# yum install firefox
# yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper.x86_64 nspluginwrapper.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.
