Flash Plugin with Fedora Core release 5 (Bordeaux)

A week back I installed Fedora Core 5, but one thing that
kept annoying was the Flash Plugins for Mozilla Firefox,
It would not allow me to view flash sites even after I installed
the Flash Player 7 for Linux.

So to overcome that heres what we need to do :
Step 1
"Systems" > "Administration" > "Security Level and Firewall".
Enter your root password and click "ok". On the "SELinux" tab click
on "Modify SELinux Policy", click on "Compatibility"
to open it and tick the check box next to
"Allow the use of shared libraries with Text Relocation". Click "ok".
Reboot your machine to implement the new SELinux policy.

install plugins thereafter

Step 2
I have pasted below the Installations given in README file
for Flash Plugin 7.


To install the Plug-in Player for Linux via an install script,
follow these directions:

- This installer is script-based and cannot be run from a GUI.
- Uncompress install_flash_player_7_linux.tar.gz.
A directory called install_flash_player_7_linux
is created. Navigate to this directory.
- From the command line,
type ./flashplayer-installer to run the installer.

The installer will instruct you to shut down your browser(s).
- Once the installation is complete, the plug-in will be installed in your
Mozilla browser. To verify,
choose Help > About Plug-ins from the browser's menu.

To manually install the Plug-in Player for Linux,

- Copy the following files to your browser's plugins folder:

My Mozilla Plugin directory was here :
