It means you didn't set up the adobe yum repository as instructed in the 
previous stage, but as you do have the flash-plugin that won't be the 
cause of your problems. But I would recommend that you start again with 
that advice and make sure you haven't omitted anything else.

If you have libflashsupport installed then remove it, eg.
rpm -e libflashsupport
because that was for flash 9 it can potentially interfere with flash 10

Of course it might not be a flash problem at all. I suggest you check your 
sound is functioning correctly by going to system -> preferences -> 
hardware -> sound and make sure it is set up sensibly and the tests all
