Updating flash player manually for Precise Puppy 5.7.1

Goto http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/

Download the "rpm" version then, use PeaZip to Extract the Mozilla plugin(libflashplayer.os)

from the "rpm" version pack.

Find the libflashplayer.os which is at Mozilla/plugins and replace it with the new one.

And install the "rpm" version.

That's it. Smile

@lost3.1

I am using tahrpup-6.0.2, not Precise but my comments are relevant I think.

Neither XArchive nor PeaZip produced the stated results.
Xarchive did not unarchive the .rpm.
PeaZip did but the filetype was .cpio, When I did have success installing getflash (see below), I found the file has an .so extension, not an .os

666philb gave the definitive solution for tahrpup in the forum

You needed to open the cpio with PeaZip to get the libflashplayer.so.

I noted: this was with Precise Puppy 5.7.1 because I know Distos can and do differ.

Some will not take the "rpm" : I just put it out as something that could be tried.

I should have noted "always back-up your set-up before playing with it"

The standard tar.gz won't cause you or Pup any trouble.
