Hello there,

I've been scratching my head for a while here. The latest adobe flash version for "linux" is You can download tars/rpms/etc here:

But for some reason everytime I download the yum or I go straight to the "yum install flash-plugin" I get the version and very annoyingly everytime I go to a site requiring flash firefox complains that the flash plug-in is out of date.

How can I install the 451 version by hand? When would the new version be available in yum? I am a bit of a newbie to Fedora :-)

Thanks for your answers

That's not going to work very well if the poster doesn't have an x64 system.

Welcome to ask.fedora. Fedora 19 has passed its EOL, so under normal conditions, there wouldn't be any more updates for it. However, adobe maintains its on repo for flash, and doesn't pay attention to the Fedora cutoff dates. (My desktop is stuck on 19 because of hardware issues.) Here are instructions for installing the adobe repo. Once that's done, yum will be able to update you to the latest version. And, on a personal note, thanx, because I didn't know there was a new version available.
