I just installed Ubuntu 8.4, followed the instructions at http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-ins...rdy-heron.html (http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-install-adobe-flash-player-10-in-ubuntu-804-hardy-heron.html)
but when I tried to install the player I recieved the error message "error:wrong architecture-i386" I have installed Ubuntu 8.4 with a partition on a new Dell with Vista. Is there an alternate flash player?
Thanks for any help...
