Re: flash player 9 on suse 10.1
NOTE: Since many proprietary video codecs, flash player etc.. are not available for 64-bit platforms,
it is difficult to configure 64-bit machines for a complete multimedia experience. Hence it is advised that users
new to linux use the 32-bit version of SUSE (32-bit SUSE works fine on 64-bit AMD machines)
Way to check would be open a terminal type uname -a
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. goodluck!

The following steps assume you want to install OpenOffice on a
multi-user Linux setup in an area accessible to all users on your
system. This is
referred to as a "network" or "multi-user" setup. Additionally you may
install OpenOffice in a "single-user" setup. Consult details in the
User Setup Guide
(a pdf file) included with the installation archive for further
details. These instructions assume you are using some X11 window manager
to perform the actual installation. The setup is an X application.
Make sure you are root
Download the tarball from OpenOffice.org (the download can be done
from any user account and then moved), and extract the tarball (.tar.gz
file) to a
"/tmp" is a good place for example. For the purpose of this example, I will assume you have downloaded the tarball to your /tmp
Open a terminal, such as xterm or konsole.
To extract the tarball, change to the /tmp directory: cd /tmp
and extract the tarball: "tar -zxvf [tarball name]".
This should create a directory "OOo_1.1x_LinuxIntel_install".
("x" in this sense is a suffix to version 1.1 that will depend on the version you downloaded.)
Change into this directory: "cd OOo_1.1x_LinuxIntel_install".
Execute the setup script for a "network" installation.
This is done with the following command: "./setup -net"
This is a friendly installation process which will prompt you for a
destination directory and other OpenOffice installation options. When
the setup is
finished, you should have a complete "network" installation installed
in the destination directory you specified. Tips on installing
an NFS setup can be found on our nfs tips page.
Note: It is NOT advisable to install over an existing
OpenOffice installation. If you want to use the same destination as an
existing version of
OpenOffice, delete the contents of the existing directory!
Part of the installation process includes telling OpenOffice
about your Java installation. Normally this can be automatically found
or you may need
to supply it, or install the JRE supplied with OpenOffice if you don't
already have it installed. (But see Prerequisites for more control over
Each user on your system should then execute the user-setup for OpenOffice.org.
To do so, login as a regular user, then change into the program directory where you installed OpenOffice.org:
"cd /opt/OpenOffice.org1.1.0", for example
and execute the following command:
The user portion of setup will now execute. Tell setup to perform a
Workstation installation (should copy about 1.4 MB of files to your home
and typically let it default to the directory it recommends for
storage of the local files in your user directory.
Follow the instructions and fill in your contact details.
If your users have been previously running an older version of OpenOffice, they should delete the current version of ".sversionrc" before
starting up the newly installed version. This will reinitialize the version information for the new setup.
That's it! If you use GNOME or KDE (provided your distro keeps the KDE user files in ~/.kde2), you will find that OpenOffice.org is fully
integrated in your environment. If you use a different Windowmanager, you can start OpenOffice.org by typing ~/OpenOffice.org1.1.0/soffice
You may remove the install files in /tmp, if you are done installing. (thanks to Henrik Eismark for pointing this out)
2. Save the .tar.gz file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely. 3. Quit your browser. 4. Remove all existing Adobe Flash Player installations from the system. 5. Unpackage the file. A directory with contains libflashplayer.so will be created. 6. Copy libflashplayer.so to ~/.mozilla/plugins. Create the 'plugins' folder if it does not exist yet. 7. Launch your brower. To verify installation in Firefox choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu.
Hope this solves your problem, please let me know as I was also an ex-windows user and the switch over requires allot of new learning for the linux environment.
I would install XP 1st then Open suse or Ubuntu. When you install either of these linux OS's ensure you install to another partition other than the windows one. Both installation routines will allow you to format the drive to the linux ext2 format and automatically install a boot manager (usually GRUB) which will allow you to select the OS you wish to boot.
i think the cd from which you are installing might have got scratched so the cdrom couldnt read some files which are needed for installation ... so i suggest you to try changing cd.... there is no problem with installing in laptops we can install linux in any laptops...... i suggest you to install fedora core instead of redhat... fedora core has good functionality and it has inbuilt firewall security also for internet and it has got good options ... so try installing fedora core 5,6, or 7 .. if you dont have means you can download from net as linux is open source to all any1 can download from net ... there are many other linux available like ubuntu,suse, mandrake etc.... suse linux is also very good it is the very user friendly linux ... there other linux which can be run by cd only which doesnt need of installing it just like knoppix live cd etc.... be care ful while partitioning if you make mistake you will lose all datas ....
