While processing some updates on my Fedora 14 (x86_64) laptop the other day, Adobe Flash Player inexplicably stopped working. Looks like there’s a 64bit version of flash now available. Not sure when this happened, but I was using a 32bit version of flash, wrapped so that it would work with 64bit. For whatever reason the upgraded version of flash no longer worked, so I took the opportunity to back out the 32bit version, and switch to the 64bit one.
Here’s what I did:

## Adobe Repository 64-bit x86_64 ## % rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm % rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux ## remove and install % yum remove flash-plugin % yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper alsa-plugins-pulseaudio libcurl
This tutorial on if-not-true-then-false.com proved helpful in figuring out why my 32bit version stopped working and how to upgraded to the x86_64 version.
