Thread: flash plugin

  1. #1

    Default flash plugin

    hi guys,

    i'm completely new to linux!

    i just installed the opensuse from the cd.
    as i opened some pages in firefox it prompted me to add the flash plugin so i did tried manualy. i downloaded it in "rpm"(not being sure if this was the one to download though).
    as i tried to install it, the yast froze at 50%.
    i restarted the pc but same again.
    then i found a guide in the forum about this with a search of "zypper".
    i checked on it and after i accepted it downloaded around 180 mbs! i'm not sure if i did it right...

    edit:
    it worked but why so many mbs to download?

    pls give some help

    sorry.. i made the "edit" later.

    my question is about the size of the download. it was around 180 mbs. was that only for the flash player?

    No. It will have dragged a load of other suff in. If you want to see the history go to:
    /var/log/zypp

    there is a history file, look to the bottom of the text
