Adobe Really Does Love Us!

In addition to this week’s announcement about a particularly awesome little beta release of Flash 9 Update, which features all sorts of treats such as native GTK support and fullscreen use, Adobe has gone one step further in easing adoption of Flash on Linux: particularly for PCLinuxOS, openSUSE, and Fedora users.

As of yesterday, Adobe now sports its own, maintained YUM repository for Flash. 😀

In order to install Flash, just run the following:

wget -O ~/adobe-release-1.0-0.noarch.rpm
su -c "rpm -Uvh adobe-release-1.0-0.noarch.rpm" root
su -c "yum install -y flash-plugin" root

Remember to restart any web browsers after installing Flash!

    You know you posted this on “ubuntu” users planet?

    PCLinuxOS has Flash installed by default…so it doesn’t need an RPM from a repository.

    @Derek – I personally dual-boot Fedora7 with Ubuntu Gutsy Alpha. So, _I_ care. 😉

    @devnet – Fair enough.

    @Derek – Just to note, PUU picks up any posts from my Linux categories, so I can’t help if it picks up things about Fedora et al.
