1. Grab the latest beta from AdobeGrab the latest beta from Adobe's website, here: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer9.html e.g. like this from a shell (no need to be root at this point):
mkdir -p ~/download/flash cd ~/download/flash wget -O fp9.tar.gz http://www.adobe.com/go/fp9_update_b2_installer_linuxplugin
2. Uninstall the flash-player packageIf you have the flash-player package installed (provided in the non-OSS repository of SUSE Linux), you'll have to uninstall it first. The following command will check whether it is installed and if it is, it will prompt you for the root password and remove it:
rpm -q flash-player && su -c "rpm -e flash-player"
3. Unpack the beta archiveUnpack the tar.gz archive you've just downloaded from Adobe's website and go into the subdirectory that's created by unpacking it:
cd ~/download/flash tar xzf fp9.tar.gz cd flash-player-plugin-*
4. Install the pluginNow let's install the plugin file (libflashplayer.so) into /usr/lib/browser-plugins/:
su -c "install -oroot -groot -m755 libflashplayer.so /usr/lib/browser-plugins/"Note that it must be installed with 0755 (executable). The command above will prompt you for your root password and install it accordingly.
