install flash player 10 into centos 5.x 64 bits

My preferred OS is CentOS 5 64 bits. I do all my development work and testing on my 3 Dell servers, at home. However, being an online shopping addict and passionate motorcycle rider, it happens for me to use Firefox and browse the Internet for something to rant about… beside coding. The problem is that most sites like YouTube etc. need the Flash Player for their site software. Adobe decided not to release a x64 Linux version of their most recent player, so the .i386 RPM will not work with Firefox x64, unless you use my trick.

The fix is easier then you think. Everything I’ve posted below was tested on a CentOS 5.2 x64 Gnome environment. Let’s fix that Flash Player to run on 64 bits, shall we?

1. Start by installing those libraries (.i386 and .x86_64):
# yum install curl compat-libstdc++-33 glibc nspluginwrapper

2. Once done with the kitchen work, it is time to install the Flash Player RPM.
# rpm -ivh /tmp/flash-plugin-

3. Close all Firefox windows and open a new one. In the address bar, type:

You should see there the Flash Player and NPAPI wrapper. Now, go watch some movies on YouTube. Was that hard? There you have it, Flash Player with Firefox x64.

Draw a Circle based on Time/Timer

I am writing this post so that people searching can benifit. When it came to me no search engine could find what I was looking for.

Well Drawing a Circle based on timer is not a good idea, Yes it is not.

In flash runtime, the specific timing of both scediled screen-update checks and TimerEvent.Timer events not guranted. The Event.ENTER_FRAME event often executes later the time scheduled by designated frame rate, and TimerEvent.Timer events often occur later than the time specified by Timer object’s delay variable.

And you get unpredicatable animation.

to gurantee that given object will travel a specified distance in specified time,

Flex 3 & QTP 10.x

Hi All,

I was trying to test my flex 3 application for functional testing , the best Autometion tool I knew of was HP – QTP(FT) priviously known as Mercury QTP.

Had few errors in setuping the application record & play.
Had this error. I know almost all of us will get this (If we dont read the document)…

Cannot find the “MacromediaFlashPlayerActiveX” object’s parent “Browser” (class Browser). Verify that parent…. flex

If you get this error then you have missed some thing from a document and that is following lines to put in you flex 3 project compiler settings… it is refrence to your automation library for flex.

-include-libraries “C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flex Builder 3 Plug-in\sdks\3.2.0\frameworks\libs\automation.swc” “C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flex Builder 3 Plug-in\sdks\3.2.0\frameworks\libs\automation_agent.swc” “C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flex Builder 3 Plug-in\sdks\3.2.0\frameworks\libs\qtp.swc” “C:\Program Files\Adobe\Flex Builder 3 Plug-in\sdks\3.2.0\frameworks\libs\automation_dmv.swc”
