Open Source Gnash Plugin

Fedora 8 comes with an open source flash plugin. To install it type:

$ sudo yum install gnash gnash-plugin

Gnash for some reason installs its plugin into /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins when it needs to be in /usr/lib/firefox-

So to fix this type:

$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ /usr/lib/firefox-

So Be careful to replace the correct Firefox version in the above command.
For the New Version Like I have :

Click ON-> Package View

Now Search For ->Gnash :in Available Package
