I believe, but am not positive, from some reading on the Adobe site, that one of their viewers also contains the other one. So, I suspect that the one it says is not available for your box or mine is included in the one that we do have installed and running. <snip> > My setup is "box stock" for this stuff, so I don't think you should need > to mess with tarballs, source, betas, etc. So is my box and messing with tarballs, etc., when it is not necessary, and it is not necessary in this case; is *strongly* discouraged by the CentOS developers and very knowledgeable people on this list. Explained in the Support documentation (Wiki) on centos.org Bill: Do you remember if there is a command one needs to use, to get the plugin to work? I'm not sure if I had to do that for Flash or another Firefox Plugin or if it was for something else.
