now working, thanks very much Leigh and Dangermouse.
Anyone successfully installed AIR and iPlayer on F11?
I've switched to 32 bit Adobe flash, tried Autoten for AIR and Dangermouse's advice for iPlayer: http://dnmouse.org/bbciplayer.html
but it's not working, and trying to install AIR from http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/install
results in an endless busy downloading graphic .
I assume my problem is a lack of required packages, though I searched the repositories using YUM extender for the packages listed here: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/408/kb408084.html
and can't see them either as installed or available.
