Getting Flash Player to work on 64-bit Linux

My environment: RH FC8 x86_64
Flash Player version:
Firefox version: 3.0.9

Adobe has released an alpha version of flash player on 64-bit Linux and to get this working on your 64-bit Linux box, go to Adobe site to download the shared object library:

Untar the file then you will get the flash player .so file:

Copy it to ~/.mozilla/plugins, if the folder doesn't exist, create the folder by yourselves. Restart the browser then you are now able to view Flash content via your firefox on your 64-bit Linux box.
