TUTORIAL: Flash Player
by Thomas Chung
on Dec 30, 2003 (UPDATED 2006-10-19)
Adobe released Flash Player 9 Beta for Linux. Here are updated spec files.
Flash Player 7.0.61 has been released. Here is updated spec for flash-plugin 7.0.61
Here is updated article for flash player 7.0.25
In this tutorial you will learn how to build Flash Player RPM package and install it for Fedora Core 1. Since Macromedia End User License Agreement
does not allow to distribute the players from our site (See FAQ
), we will simply provide a link for Macromedia Download Site where you can download the tarball and a custom RPM Spec file which allows to build your own custom RPM package. You will also find that Mr. Warren Togami
has created RPM packages already at http://macromedia.mplug.org/
so please consider this tutorial as an excercise for learning RPM build tool.
Download the tarball install_flash_player_6_linux.tar.gz from following URL:
