Specs: Linux i686
I have now tried to install flash player for my linux, and it seems nearly impossible, which of the linux versions got I??

the yum
or tar.gc
or rmp
or deb
I really wish that I never tried to installed Linux - Ubuntu, which have reconfigured my the bios, so now I don't have access to windows.

Linux is just crap, it have been blocked up nu 5 times in one week,

Windows have maybe bin blocked up 3 time in five years.

Most people simply use the package management that if offered by their distro.

What distro did you install?

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

If you think that Linux is crap, don't bother trying to install Flash. Format your hard disk and re-install Windows. You'll be happier that way.

Hi Ijack

Your properly right, just I have been recommended to use ubuntu emc2, because I wanted to build a cnc machine, it should be a reliable soft ware, a free of course.

There's nothing wrong with Linux, you just don't know how to use it. Linux is not Windows. It doesn't support .EXE files so installing drivers (& most everything else) is totally different. The drivers you downloaded are different types of Linux files. The .TAR.GZ file for instance is a compressed .TAR file. A .TAR is basically a collection of files within a single file. To install it, you have to do a bit of command line work (similar to DOS). Like jefro said, the easist way is to just use the package manager that's included with the distro. The package manager is a little like Windows Update. If you're using Ubuntu, click System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager, then search for Flash Player & install it.

Distro is short for distribution. Almost no one actually uses linux as such. They use a collection of applications and software and compiled binaries that are put together by one or more people. The result is a version by some name.
