Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris Unlike Apple and Microsoft, and despite numerous demands from their users, Linux distributions have been traditionally unable to directly ship the popular Adobe Flash Player with their packages, due to the closed source nature of the software and the restrictive license chosen by Adobe. While it does seems shorter than a regular EULA made by Microsoft with all the legalese that goes with it, it does still restrict redistribution in most cases, and the FAQ seemed to be clear about that point.

Open a Terminal.

Become root:

su -

Install the Adobe repository for yum:

yum --nogpgcheck install


yum install --exclude=AdobeReader* flash-plugin nspluginwrapper.{i686,x86_64} pulseaudio-libs.i686 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686 libcurl.i686

Configure Firefox to see the plugin, by typing:

mozilla-plugin-config -i -g -v

If you have Firefox open, quit and open it again.

Or on Windows ... download the installer.
