Flash plugin RPM installed but not being used by Firefix in fedora

+1 vote

I've followed the instructions to install the flash plugin by downloading the
YUM version and then installing the RPM. I got no errors when doing any of
this. However, flash still does not work in Firefox. If I do 'about:plugins'
it isn't listed.

Any suggestions on what to try next. All I'm getting from Google is variations
of the same instructions I've already done.

Try out the open source version - gnash-plugin :-)
yum remove flash-plugin
yum install gnash-plugin

I installed wireshark on my F20/Gnome notebook, and yum has kept it updated:

# grep wire yum*

Feb 21 20:15:51 wireshark-1.10.5-2.fc20.x86_64: 100

Wireshark does not show as an application. I don't see a bin for wireshark, only a bunch of libs. What may be missing here?

I am using Fedora 20, subversion 1.8.5-2. In ~/.subversion/config I have

enable-auto-props = yes

*.xml = svn:eol-style=native; svn:keywords=Author Date Id Revision

When I do

svn add my.xml
svn: E200009: Can't set 'svn:eol-style': file '/data/mysvn/trunk/my.xml' has binary mime type property

But with Ubuntu 12.10/subversion 1.7.5-1 svn add my.xml works just fine.

Any idea why the behavior is different?

I did a test install of Fedora 19 on a spare machine and discovered that MySQL is no longer part of the Distro being replaced by MariaDB.

Has anyone tried to run WordPress in conjunction with MariaDB and if so any problems.
