    Default How Do I get Flash Player

    I'm running opensuse 11.1 and firefox 3.5.2 I installed the latest version of flash but i cant get youtube to see it. Youtube says that i either have java disabled or an old version of flash, both of which are wrong. I am a newbie but i think it has to do with the path. Any help?

    This works for 32bit, not for 64bit. Flashplayer is also available through Yast and Online update.

    Or if you're 32-bit, choose the .rpm and let YAST install it for you by choosing Open with Install Software, which should be the default.

    Take Care,
