General :: Error Message Given While Trying To Download Adobe Flash 10.1

Jul 22, 2010

When I try to download the recent adobe flash 10.1 for my linux drive, I get the following error dialog box:

cannot get lock
cannot get the exclusive lock on the packaging backend. Please close any other legacy packaging tools that my be open.

Yum is locked by another application. The other process has the command line '/usr/bin/python /usr/share/yumex/yum_childtask.pyc 2 True False' (PID 2053)

I'm at a lost right now, I tried researching to find a possible reason, but I'm coming up short. I have a dual boot laptop with both fedora core 12 and windows7. Could there be a conflict between the two drives? I have the YUM extender on my linux drive performing the updates for me. I tried doing a YUM update via the terminal viewer, but I still get the same message.Any ideas as to why I'm getting this message, or how to fix this problem?

General :: Synaptic Crash Trying To Download Adobe Flash Player

Nov 8, 2009

Moved to linux as I was assured it was "uncrashable" but I seem to have managed it after only 2 days. Running ubuntu 9.10 and trying to download adobe flash player. I get an error message :-
E: The package adobe-flashplugin needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
E:Internal error opening cache (1). Please report.

Every time I close this window synaptic package manager also closes. When I try to download flash player directly from the adobe web page, synaptic refuses to cooperate. I am now stuck as I can't delete this or download anything else.Computer janitor won,t delete it either.Also when I go applications>ubuntu software centre, everything I try to download comes up with Not available in this critical data.I can see this is going to be a very steep learning curve.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.4 - Installing Adobe Flash After Download

Apr 7, 2011

How to install Adobe Flash on my netbook. I recently installed openSUSE 11.4 which I am guessing is the newest one. I also am using Mozilla Firefox 4.0 Beta 12. I can't seem to install it at all. First I downloaded the YUM file and tried installing it with some weird program that came with openSUSE and it is just too difficult. I definitely do not know how to use it. Then I read I should be installing the tar.gz file and so I did. Even then people have different ways of installing it. The easiest way I have seen has been the way Adobe's website tells how to install it.

Installation instructions for tar.gz
1. Click the download link to begin installation. A dialog box will appear asking you where to save the file.
2. Save the .tar.gz file to your desktop and wait for the file to download completely.
3. Unpackage the file.
4. Copy the libflashplayer.so file to the plugins folder of your browser. Refer to your browser vendor for the location of this folder.
5. To verify the plug-in is installed in your Mozilla browser, launch Mozilla and choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser menu.

Now my problem is that when it tells me to copy "Copy the libflashplayer.so file to the plugins folder of your browser" I cannot find the "plugins" folder in my mozilla/firefox folder. Now I'm actually wondering if it's because it a Beta version of Mozilla Firefox. I'm not very good with "coding" and "commands".

Ubuntu :: Is It Safe To Download Flash Directly From Adobe Site?

Dec 13, 2009

When I use the BBC site, I see messages "Cannot play media.You do not have the correct version of the flash player. Download the correct version"..However, when I go to Applications > Ubuntu Software Centre, I get the message, "Adobe Flash Player is installed on this computer. It is used by 1 piece of installed software"If I try to use the Firefox Adobe add-ins feature, I'm directed to the Adobe page. Is it safe to use this feature rather than, for example, Synaptic Package Manager?

Fedora :: Cryptic Error Message When Trying To Install Flash

Jul 9, 2010

I'm new to Fedora 13, although 10 years ago I fooled around a little with Red Hat 4.2 and Mandrake 7. I'm trying to install flash on my desktop. The install went as smooth as can be on my laptop, but the desktop isn't going well. First of all, My system is an AMD Phenom 9950 Quad Core in an Asus M4N78 PRO motherboard with 4 Gb of RAM, although Gnome reports it as 3.8 Gb. Video is Invidia GeForce 5500.

The Flash install goes ok until I enter the command:
"yum install flash-plugin nspluginwrapper.x86_64
nspluginwrapper.i686 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686
libcurl.i686"

Once that command starts running it pops out this error message:
Error: Package: glibc-2.12-2.i686 (updates)
Requires: glibc-common = 2.12-2
Installed: glibc-common-2.12-3.x86_64 (@updates-testing)
Available: glibc-common-2.12-1.x86_64 (fedora)
Available: glibc-common-2.12-2.x86_64 (updates)
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest

I've tried the work arounds suggested by the error message and they didn't work. I tried downloading the missing file and it seems to not exist. I also tried this command:
yum downgrade glibc-common-2.12-3.x86_64

That generated this output:

Ubuntu :: Download The Restricted Extras From The Software Center - Get An Error Message

I've already reinstalled this computer 4 times, and it NEVER asked me for the CD. Why would it ask for it now? Not only that it asks for a CD I don't have.
