Installing Adobe Air on an XO...?

The remaining hurdle was ENOSPC. So the recipe is

 # it ignores TMPDIR so enlarge /tmp doing
 mount -o remount,size=30% /tmp
 # requires rpm build toolchain - !?
 yum -yt install rpm-build rpm-dev
 # the installer wants to open windows for you to click ok
 # check that you have adobe-certs and adobeair installed
 rpm -qa adobe*

If only one was installed, remove it before retrying.

As I mentioned elsewhere, this will work for developers' machines;
anyone expecting to deploy it on many laptops needs an rpm from Adobe.

Strangely, the installer builds the rpms but they are nowhere to be
found. Sneaky.
