OK, I just found out, after quite a lot of fiddling. Be it a server or a 
desktop, I always start out with a bare-bones minimal system. Then, I 
only add what I really need : X server, GNOME, handful of apps. And so 
it comes that the 'curl' package is not installed on my systems (as I 
tend to type 'wget -c' instead of 'curl -C - -O' :oD).

Now here's the solution : Flash 10 has a dependency on 'curl', and that 
dependency is not explicit. Curiously enough, Flash 9 works without curl.

RPMForge packagers, roll up your sleeves :o)
