64-bit Flash 10 on Fedora 10

Since Adobe has released 'alpha' version of their 64-bit version of the flash player, thought i'd give it a try in Fedora 10. It just works !

Installation process is simple. Uninstall your existing flash packages.

nareshv@ >] rpm -qa \*flash\*
nareshv@ >] sudo rpm -e `rpm -qa \*flash\*`

Get the Flash Plugin from here

[nareshv@ >]$ tar zxf libflashplayer-10.0.d20.7.linux-x86_64.so.tar.gz
[nareshv@ >]$ ls libflashplayer.so
[nareshv@ >]$ cp libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/

Thats it. Restart your browser, you should see the flash plugin present in firefox (check it by typing about:plugins in the address bar.)

Attached are the two screenshots on my Fedora10 Macbook.

1. Yahoo! Music playing videos with the new 64-bit flash-player.

2. Firefox 'about:plugins' window showing the new 64-bit Flash Player

  4. Its been over a year, but since you're still one of the top results in Google when trying to do this, I figured I'd post this.

    Since this was posted here, Adobe has relocated the 64bit version of Flashplayer 10 to http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer10_64bit.html
