Yesterday i installed updates in my Fedora 17 based on the notification from update manager. After installation, my flash video got choppy after 15 mins. Whenever i play a web video for 15 mins CPU consumption becomes 100% and video is choppy. And computer is completely unusable. Do anybody know any solution to this?

I did a "cat /var/log/yum.log" to see what was installed during the update.

This is my answer to this issue. I did a lot of reading, tweaking, updating etc. No luck. Since flash doesn't support linux there doesn't seem to any solution. I am moving to a different distro. hopefully i don't hit the same issue.
