Installing Adobe Air on Slackware

Few days ago, there was a question in ID-Slackware mailing list about how to install Adobe Air in Slackware. He followed a tutorial for Slackware 12.2 but it didn't work out, so i tried his steps, but with my own way and i think i hit the jackpot big grin

  1. Download Mozilla-NSS SlackBuild from AlienBOB
  2. Grab the latest version of nss and nspr
  3. Edit the version in mozilla-nss.SlackBuild script and execute it
  4. Install Mozilla-NSS package
  5. Get the RPM package for Adobe AIR
  6. Convert to TGZ using rpm2tgz and install it
  7. Voila..... you can now access RIA Gallery from Adobe or Fresh Air Apps to test whether it works or not
Please let me know if it's not working.

I tested it on Slackware-Current 32 bit using Firefox
