64 bit flash preview

Adobe is back with 64 bit flash for Linux. This is a preview and grab it before they close it again. Last time when they had tried this, there were a number of security issues and preview was pulled down soon.


  1. Download the preview version from Adobe labs site
  2. Untar the downloaded plugin 
  3. Copy the resulting plugin to your firefox plugin folder
    1. I had to first create this: mkdir /usr/lib64/firefox-3.6/plugins
    2. Copy to that folder
  4. Just re-start firefox and you are ready to browse the flash sites :)
Download link

(Its not easy to find the link. It took me 10 minutes to find this. Though there is a get beta note on the download page, it does not take you directly here)
