    http://www.amctv.com has full versions of all episodes of "The Prisoner" available for viewing...COMMERCIAL FREE...YAY!!!!! :D

    But I'm getting a message that says that I need to update my Adobe Flash player :eek:

    I clicked on the link and Adobe's website is asking me to choose from one of FOUR different versions:

    .tar .gz for Linux

    .rpm for Linux

    YUM for Linux

    and .deb for Ubuntu 8.0.4 (obviously not this one)

    Does anyone know which version to install...and how to install it? Are the installation instructions different that those found on this site?

    All I've been able to find out so far is that Linpus is based on Fedora 7, and that Fedora 7 supposedly uses the .rpm version of Adobe Flash Player.

    Is this correct?

    I updated my Flash player to version 10 using link provided here:

    http://macles.blogspot.com/search?updat ... results=12

    and verified it as well on adobe's site.

    Still got the "update needed" on AMC's website so I cleared out all private data in my browser, closed the browser, and rebooted.

    Success!!!!

    I'd tell you more but then...that would be telling. ;)
