    Default Adobe Flash Player 10+ plugin on Firefox

    In order to watch videos from nobelprize.org via Firefox
    I now need Adobe Flash Player 10+ (previously it used to be
    Real Player and I had no problem).
    I downloaded flash-plugin-10.0.32.18.rpm on my
    openSUSE 10.3 Gnome OS and installed by running rpm -Uvh.
    Even then the videos are not playing and the notice tells
    that I need Adobe Flash Player 10+ .
    Please advise.
    P.Rudra.

    You should remove the old flash and do

    rpm -ihv *packagename

    FYI: You quote wrongly -Uvh

    it's rpm -Uhv

    I think both are valid - but I've been wrong before. :-)

    Thanks caf & jim. Everything is working fine.
    An information for non-specialists/users only:
    I had to close the browser before installing the plug-in
    to have it active.
