    Flash for X86_64 is very easy. The native plugin isn't that hard to install. Download it and copy the libflashplayer.so to your /mozilla/plugins folder and you're good to go.

    A F10 respin is due out shortly.
    I might have to backup and reinstall respin as my 10 is messed up badly. I think core 8 went off updates with something like 450 bug fixes being dropped. I'm thinking 10 will only get really good by time 11 is released. There's still so many x problems and video driver problems but it needs adobe to fix flash for x_64 badly. I don't think the new respin is going to be worth burning maybe the next one.

    But they could release every 3 months and still not have latest versions of the massive upstream movements.
    Or they could avoid massive dist-upgrades every 6 months and roll their releases ala Debian unstable. Isn't Fedora something like RHEL unstable, anyway?

    What a difference the last 2 years has made.
    Quoted for truth.

    Have to agree with ya there. 10 was more stable in mid beta than it was at release. I think their release schedules are too fast and maybe they should stretch them out to 9 months. Give more of a chance to make real improvements instead of constantly stitching small upgrades together.

    11 is so developement heavy though. It makes me wonder if everyone is not dogpiling into linux. But they could release every 3 months and still not have latest versions of the massive upstream movements. What a difference the last 2 years has made.

    It was a dbus issue, not SElinux, and yes, you need to issue a manual "yum update" in order to revert dbus back to a working version...

    But on a more serious note, congrats to them. I hope they also fixed up some of that SELinux stuff - I managed to bork my f10 after half an hour of use and now I cannot have it check for updates at all.
    I had the same issue as well- where it try to use the update app, and would fail with a message about .org.dbus (or something similar) not having permissions.

    I ended up using yum to update the packages (whatever ones were mentioned in the error message, plus selinux policies, hal, and yum updates). I can't remember exactly which package did it, but after installing the right upgrade, the updater app started working again.
    Hope that helps!
