Currently I'm "cheating" with RHEL 6 because I'm using a 32 bit browser on 
a 64 bit OS to get flashplayer. But in the future I'll be switching to a 
different RHEL 6 setup. For that system I'll have to use the normal 64 bit 
firefox browser so I use what the users have. I plan on using the 
experimental 64 bit version of flash once I switch. I don't think there is 
an rpm (yet). Its in a tarball...

The page explaining it is at:


The URL is:


I'm not sure about acrobat because I just use evince and it "just works." 

Maybe if you install the 32 bit rpms you can run the 32 bit version on a 
64 bit system?

Something like:

rpm -qa | grep x86_64 | sed 's at x86_64@i686@' | xargs yum -y install

as root to install the packages.
