How To Install flasm on Fedora 34
In this tutorial, we will discuss How To Install flasm on Fedora 34
yum package managers.
Also, we will demonstrate how to uninstall and update
flasm as well.
If you are only interested in the installation command, here is a quick answer for you:
or if you use
sudo yum makecache && sudo yum -y install flasm
sudo dnf makecache && sudo dnf -y install flasm
But if you are interested in the details with step-by-step instructions, the following information will be helpful.
Short description: assembler and disassembler for Flash (SWF) bytecode
First things first, you will need access to a server or computer running Fedora 34. This guide was written specifically with a server running Fedora 34 in mind, although it should also work on older, supported versions of the operating system.
Also, make sure you are running a regular, non-root user with sudo privileges configured on your server. When you have an account available, log in as your non-root user to begin.
There are several ways to install flasm on Fedora 34. You can use (links are clickable):
In the following sections, we will describe each method in detail. You can choose one of them or refer to the recommended one.
First, update dnf packages database with
dnf by running the next command:
sudo dnf makecache --refresh
After updating database,
You can install flasm using
dnf by running the
sudo dnf -y install flasm
Because flasm is available in Fedora 34’s default
it is possible to install it from these repositories using the
To begin, update local packages database with
yum using the following command.
sudo yum makecache --refresh
Now can install flasm package on your server/computer by running the following command:
sudo yum -y install flasm
To update all the packages available on the system:
If you want to update a specific package like flasm in this example you should use the following command:
yum update flasm
To downgrade a package to an earlier version:
yum downgrade flasm
When you run the
dnf update, all system packages with available updates are updated.
However, if you want to upgrade a single package, then you would have to pass the package name as
the argument to the dnf update command.
dnf update flasm
To uninstall only the
flasm package you can execute
sudo dnf remove flasm
Flasm disassembles your entire SWF including all the timelines and events. Looking at disassembly, you learn how the Flash compiler works. You can also do some optimization on the disassembled code by hand or adjust the code as you wish. Flasm can then re-assemble the bytecode into a new SWF. It is also possible to embed Flasm actions in your ActionScript, making optimization of large projects more comfortable. Flasm is not a decompiler. What you get is the human readable representation of SWF bytecode, not ActionScript source. Flasm can also compress and decompress SWF files. Flasm does not and may never work with Flash 9 files since Flash 9 is a new virtual machine and support for it would mean a full rewrite.
You now have a full guide on how to install
yum package managers.
Also, we showed how to update manually as a single package and different ways to uninstall
the flasm from Fedora 34.
