    Anyone succeeded installing Adobe Air on Fedora 10?

    hsg147

      I just tried to install AdobeAir on my Fedora 10 GNOME system but got an error message:

       

            Adobe AIR could not be installed. Either gnome-keyring or Kwallet must be installed prior
            to installing Adobe AIR.

       

      But gnome-keyring is installed on my system:

       

         [root@localhost Desktop]# yum list *ring*

         Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit

         Installed Packages

         gnome-keyring.x86_64                          2.24.1-1.fc10                installed

         gnome-keyring-pam.x86_64                  2.24.1-1.fc10                installed

         gnome-python2-gnomekeyring.x86_64  2.23.0-1.fc10                installed

       

      so I don't know what to do next. I also can't find a Kwallet to install via yum (and am not sure that would work anyhow since I am not using the KDE desktop).

       

      Has anyone succeeded installing Air on Fedora 10? If so, can you email me how?

       

         Thanks,

          A partial solution to my own post: AdobeAir evidently is a 32-bit product and the specific error message was caused by my having a 64-bit system. When I used yum to install the 32-bit version of gnome-keyring , the AdobeAirInstaller.exe got further but then gave a new error message:

           

              "An error occurred while installing Adobe AIR. Installation may not be allowed by your administrator. Please contact your administrator."

           

          I ran the command as a superuser so I am confused why the Installer won't go the whole way, it should be able to install all necessary files. So I am still stuck, but in a new spot.

            try adobe air installation on your Fedora 10 after installing xterm on it.

            sudo yum install xterm

            see if that resolves your issue.

            As 64-bit linux isn't supported officially, so please share the steps you did before installing 32-bit adobe air runtime on 64-bit fedora 10.

              This does not make a difference.

               

              I did find this webpage:

               

                  http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/408/kb408084.html

               

              which gives some suggestions about how to install Air on a

              64-bit Linux distribution, but the information is out of

              date, e.g., although Air evidently installs and works on a

              64-bit Fedora 8 system, it does not on Fedora 10. The

              recommended 32-bit libraries also don't exist (at least,

              they are not accessible via yum).
