acroread location

Hi
I looked back at previuos threads and found a location that Dangermouse posted for 64 bit acroread, but now getting the 404 message.
Is there still aversion of acrored for 64 bit or is it a case of load the 32 bit libs and install the 32bit version ??

TIA
Richard

Re: acroread location

If there was ever a 64 bit version of AdobeReader it's been a well kept secret. i've never found it, and I have both the 32 and 64 bit Adobe repos installed. You can install the 32 bit repo... create the file

/etc/yum.repos.d/adobe-linux-i386.repo

..then put this text into it,
Code:
[adobe-linux-i386]
name=Adobe Systems Incorporated
baseurl=http://linuxdownload.adobe.com/linux/i386/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux
Then just do,
Code:
yum install AdobeReader_enu
Yum will pull in all the 32 bit deps, except, if your using the kmod-nvidia drivers from rpmfusion and haven't already done so, you'll also need to install "xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs.i686"
