    How do you mean you can't.

    Open a terminal and type: su
    then your root password

    then:

    zypper in flash-player

    Pardon my interruption,

    But doesn't openSUSE pull in flash during the first online update? From what I remember it always has. The user has a fresh install of openSUSE 11.1 and seeing as du66y doesn't know how to install software, it might be reasonable to suggest he/she hasn't run an online update yet.

    I guess that wouldn't account for it not being installed with zypper in flash-player but it could be a viable scenario.

    du66y, have you run an online update yet?

    Hello,

    I am having a similar issue with YouTube, running openSUSE 11.1 ppc64.

    I have been able to get to the point where some warbled sound plays for each YouTube video, but no visuals...just a black square.

    I have tried the command "zypper in flash-player" but receive the "'flash-player' not found" message.

    Here is the result of "zypper lr":

    Code:

    There isn't a flash for ppc. The binary files don't work for ppc.

    Follow this guide here PowerPC Flash Player - openSUSE

    Good Luck,
