Updating the Version of Adobe AIR for Linux Used by Flex Builder Linux

This was culled from the Adobe labs site. Purely selfish reasons as a personal reminder for moi.

Follow these simple steps to upgrade the SDK used by Flex Builder Linux on your machine:

    * Download the Adobe AIR SDK from www.adobe.com/go/airlinux.
    * Go to the sdks/3.0.0/ folder (in the Flex Builder installation directory).
    * Delete the "runtimes" folder.
    * Extract the latest Adobe AIR SDK and copy its contents into sdks/3.0.0/, overwriting existing files.
    * Go to sdks/3.0.0/bin/ and rename adl and adt as adl_lin and adt_lin (if adl_lin and adt_lin already exist there, remove them).
    * Go to sdks/3.0.0/runtimes/air/ and create a symlink "Linux" pointing to the "linux" folder in the same directory.

N.B A symlink: In computing, a symbolic link (also symlink or soft link) is a special type of file that contains a reference to another file or directory in the form of an absolute or relative path and that affects pathname resolution. (Wikipedia)
