Well. This is quite embarrassing for Linux. Why do u have to set the eXecutable bit and to run the terminal, change the directory and execute the binary instead of simple double-click on it? Linux will never spread to people with behaviour like this.

Hello Shawn,

Does Adobe Air Linux is for 32-bit machine or it can be installed in a 64-bit also?


Yes... sort of :)

AIR does not support 64-bit natively, but it should still run ok if you install the required 32-bit packages. See this Adobe blog entry for more info:

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
