Firefox could not install – error


Hi there,

This is quite a common problem with a simple fix.
The first thing you have to do is to install the libraries: yum install curl compat-libstdc++-33 glibc nspluginwrapper
After the libraries are done, you need to download the flash player rpm.
Once downloaded, rpm has to be installed. You will do that with the command:
rpm -ivh flash-plugin-***. rpm
(Replace *** with the version you have downloaded.)
Keep in mind that this has to be performed inside the folder where your downloaded file is saved.
After installing, restart the Firefox and everything should work.
