    Acrobat reader 7.0 fails to launch on FC4

    Hi, all

    acroread fails to start after a successful installation.
    # /usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/bin/acroread
    /usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/Reader/intellinux/lib/libJP2K.so: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied.

    Then I try some searches on the net and the most plausible answer is that acroread conflicts with SELinux. So I disable SELinux and it dissapears after the splash screen. What's wrong?

    Regards,

    Leonard.

    I just solved the exact same problem. You need to install the package called "compat-libstdc++-33," which contains the old version of libstdc++ which Acrobat Reader 7 needs. (This is found in README.)
    Code:
    # yum install compat-libstdc++-33
    BTW, the latest version of SELinux packages should solve the permission problem, too, if you want to enable SELinux again.

    There are also a couple of other things you should do. See the Adobe Reader section here.

    I was assuming the OP was talking about using Acrobat Reader as a standalone application.

    You're right but smfinley was just taking that extra step to help leonard configure his Acrobat Reader, in the event that he/she may pose a question related to that. Giving extra information is sometimes better.

    It work, but one thing I want to know.

    Thank you all! The issue is solved.

    But there is one thing I do not figure out.

    I check the install.log (it's in the /root directory) and find the package you specified has already been installed. ( by issuing command 'cat install.log | grep compat-libstdc++' ). Why I have to reinstall it again to make adobe reader work?

    Regards!

    Leonard.

    The instructions actually read "If you have not done an "everything" installation type:
    Code:
    yum install compat-libstdc++-33
    " The implication is that if you have done an "everything" installation compat-libstdc++-33 will already be installed and you will not have to perform this command.

    There are two "compat-libstdc++" packages available, as far as I know.
    Code:
    [daihard-fc4:/home/dtoyama]$ rpm -qa | grep compat-libstd
    compat-libstdc++-296-2.96-132.fc4
    compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-47.fc4
