I'm with Spolsky on this one: I.e. I think it's too tedious to re-read the
entire conversation preceding this message in every message, but I didn't
know there are such rules. I'm sorry if I violated them.

AIR on Linux is no longer supported, but it has never existed for amd64
architecture. The only variant there was for i386. If you wanted to use it
on amd64, you'd need to hack your system to install 32-bit compatibility
libraries with analogous of their 64-bit counterparts. This had a tendency
of breaking other things... There has never been an official Linux package
for AIR for any kind of Linux. The thing that existed was a collection of
several binaries and a long list of DIY instructions for installing it.
The "tested" versions of AIR target Linux releases which are no longer
supported, for instance, the version targeting Ubuntu is for Ubuntu 9.04
(current version is 11.10, but 12.04 is also available). The 10.04 will no
longer be maintained in about a year from now and 9.04 is not maintained
for about two years already. So finding the corresponding libnss and other
SSL-related libraries of the proper version is increasingly difficult.
Given you have no source code, the program is practically dead today.
Finally, I don't know what version is required for CHC to run because the
AIR web installer simply won't launch for me, and there's no other way to
get it.
