Hello. I already read how to install flash support in the documentation. My question is: how do you keep track of the updates to flash?

I think yum is of no use here since we are talking of a package that's not an any repository, but I'm not sure.

Thanks.

Adobe hosts a repository as pointed out in the answer below. We just have no control over the updates it issues.

To install flash, I configure a new repository using this command:

sudo yum -y --nogpgcheck install http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm -y

And then I install the package flash-plugin:

sudo yum install flash-plugin

This way, you should get updates... But you won't get much since the Linux support is just limited to fixes to flash player 11.2. If you want an updated version, you will have to use Chrome which has its own plugin embedded.
