YUM repository definition for Linux Flash Player available

We recently published the Adobe YUM repository definition for the Linux Flash Player.
YUM is a way for users on RPM-based Linux distributions to check for updates and automatically install them. You can download it from the Linux player download center on Adobe.com.

Special thanks go out to player dev Mike Tilburg for initiating and seeing this project through, Sal M for testing, and the web team (Lisa, Russ, Todd R) for getting this live!

  1. It’s not done yet. Test it with 64-bit Linux of any flavor and you’ll find that it kills yum.

    This is great! You might want to consider signing the packages in the yum repository.

  3. Would it be a “Debianish” form of this same functionality?

    Excellent work- works great on my Centos 4.5 and 5.0 installations. Any chance of getting an rpm of Adobe Reader added to the repo next?Cheers,A.D.

    I realize this is a bit old but this is a huge step forward!! I greatly appreciate that you can install this directly with the command:rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release-i386-1.0-1.noarch.rpmHowever, I would really appreciate it if two things:most desired:1. add the Reader to the same repositorynit-picky:2. rename the repository to [adobe] or at least [adobe-release] as the “-i386” is redundant because it was checked (supposedly) in the rpm install. while you are at it, don’t call it ‘noarch’ if it only goes on i386 machines!!!ideal file to install would be:http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release.noarch.rpmand have this always point to the most recent version. That way the install is ultra-mega simple:> rpm -ivh http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/adobe-release/adobe-release.noarch.rpm> yum -y install flash-plugin acroreadthat last bit would be the dream.Thanks!John
