How to install Flash 11 64-bit on Fedora 16

Change into you home directory.
cd ~
Download the official Adobe repository package rpm. This rpm will create the repository file for us.
sudo wget http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/x86_64/adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
Install the rpm file.
sudo rpm -ivh adobe-release-x86_64-1.0-1.noarch.rpm
Import the repository GPG key.
sudo rpm --import /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
Update you local yum repositories.
sudo yum update
Install the 64 bit Flash Plugin
sudo yum -y install flash-plugin

Check if the install was successful. In Firefox, go to “about:plugins” in the address bar and look for “Shockwave Flash”. If installed you will see;

File: libflashplayer.so
Version: Shockwave Flash 11.0 r1

Quick Step: If you just want to install the Flash Plugin and not bother about the repo you can download the installer directly and install Flash.

cd ~
sudo wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/11.0.1.152/flash-plugin-11.0.1.152-release.x86_64.rpm
sudo rpm -ivh flash-plugin-11.0.1.152-release.x86_64.rpm
