First thank you to everyone here...I am new in this Ubuntu.   Firstly
i have two requirements:

a.   I need git to do linux kernel development.
b.   I need flash for my firefox.   So I downloaded the rpm file.

So in Fedora Core, normally I will do "yum install xxx.rpm" where
xxx.rpm is the downloaded flash rpm file from adobe, and yum
automatically will do a recursive download of all dependent packages
and install it at the same time.   "rpm" cannot do that.

Sorry for all these...for flash I think I found the answer in:

and for the kernel I found it here:

Ok...problem solved....thank you for the guide on git-core everyone ...etc!!!!!
