    First off I guess I should tell everyone I'm not too computer savvy :mamoru: I can follow instructions but I'm not going to be tearing out a computer's insides any time soon.

    I'm entirely new to Linux, but I'm now using Yellow Dog on my PS3...it's pretty damn cool. My only problem is, I have no idea how to adapt from being a windows user to a Linux user.

    I'm trying to find something that will allow me to view videos on line, like youtube videos and such, without actually downloading them. You guys know what I'm talking about, right? haha

    Anyway, I tried downloading Flash Player 9, and managed to get all the way to the point where I run the installer using the Terminal. It pops up and tells me my architecture doesn't allow for Flash Player 9 to be used :confused:

    What can I do in this situation? :hsd:

    Flash does not support PowerPC Linux.

    Try installing Automatix (sp?). It will grab and install the plug-ins you don't have and don't know you need. Worked on Ubuntu.
