  1. Hello, I am trying to install the flash sa projector on RHEL 6 (x64). Is your machine running a 32-bit or a 64-bit OS? Do the package names change depending on whether the machine is 32 or 64 bit? Thanks!

  2. Hi Trevor, mine is Fedora 64 bit. The name should be the same since Fedora and RHEL is from Redhat.

    I am not sure what is your concern. If you having any error when trying to install the package , you can share with me. If you want to make sure those package are available before installation, you can try to search the package using yum command.

  3. Thanks, I got the packages installed, and pretty much ended up using your list exactly, i.e. the only 32-bit packages I used were the *.i686 ones you mentioned. The flash player runs fine so far. I appreciate your post!
