Flash on Fedora 64bit

Fedora 8

Adobe Flash page

  • get the YUM package, and install it
  • install “flash-plugin” via Yum
  • on x86-64, run nspluginscan
  • restart firefox

Fedora Core 6

Firefox 1.5


I had to edit /usr/bin/firefox, and made the following changes: (commented out the following # parts)

MOZ_ARCH=$(uname -m)
case $MOZ_ARCH in
#       x86_64 | ia64 | s390 )
#               MOZ_LIB_DIR="/usr/lib64"
#               SECONDARY_LIB_DIR="/usr/lib"
#               ;;



As of firefox- the method of selecting the 32-bit version has been simplified. Now you simply create a file called /etc/sysconfig/firefox-arch containing the following lines:

MOZ_LIB_DIR=“/usr/lib” SECONDARY_LIB_DIR=“/usr/lib64”

The remainder of these instructions are only for people who have not updated lately and still have an older version of Firefox. These instructions will go away soon:

Firefox 2.0
