After getting messages about updating Adobe Air for a while, I finally decided to bite the bullet and do it.
Crazy hell ensued, in that nothing from Air would work any more after that, and all I got was cryptic core dumps. I tried to uninstall Air and Tweetdeck, and failed at that for a while, too, until I figured out the following:
- Air and Air applications like Tweetdeck actually end up as RPMs. You can (should) remove them using rpm -e as the root user or with sudo. (found via Adobe’s page, sort of)
- I found the rpms by grepping: rpm -qa | grep ado — or — rpm -qa | grep weet
- You may have to remove or move your certificates folder in /etc/opt
So, if you decide to update Adobe Air on your Fedora 12 box and suddenly everything seems borked, you might just want to uninstall everything and install from scratch. I just did this and it worked well, and I’m up and running with the latest Tweetdeck for Linux.
