    try again
    In case that was directed towards me, I tried and it didn't help. I still get this when trying the "zypper in flash-player" command:

    Code:
    Download (curl) error for 'http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.1/repo/non-oss/content':
    Error code: Connection failed
    Error message: Couldn't resolve host 'download.opensuse.org'

    Hey, in following these instructions from the Adobe website:

    Installation instructions for the YUM repository definition

    1. Click the download link to begin installation. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file.
    2. Save the .rpm file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely.
    3. In terminal, navigate to the desktop and type # rpm -Uvh <rpm_package_file>. Click Enter. (Note: This must be done as a root user).
    4. Once the installation is complete, in terminal, type # yum install flash-plugin. Click Enter. (Note: This must be done as a root user).
    5. To verify the plugin is installed in Mozilla, launch Mozilla and choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu.
    6. To get the most up-to-date Flash Player in the future, simply type # yum update flash-plugin in terminal. You will not need to repeat steps 1-4.
    I get to step 3 and the terminal says it's already installed. I go to step 4 and it says "yum" command not found. Fantastic. So I tried a load of variations of the command and nothing works. And in the add-ons manager of Firefox, it still says I still don't have Adobe Flash Player.

    YUM is of no use? Then which Adobe Flash should I download? There was a YUM version, an .rpm version... a lot of versions.
