Making Adobe Flash work on a 64-bit Fedora 11

On the Fedora Wiki there is an excellent article which made my Fedora 11 (x86_64) run Flash 10.

This is a copy-paste from the article:

Adobe also has a pre-release version of a 64-bit plugin. Until this is supported via yum, you will need to do the following:

1. Download the .tar.gz version from Adobe here.
2. Use "gtar -xzvf" to extract libflashplayer.so and put it in either in /usr/lib64/mozilla/plugins/ or ~/.mozilla/plugins/.
3. Restart Firefox.
