How do i make acrobat reader work?
Sounds like you have a missing dependency. I had to download some 32-bit i.686 packages to get it to work. Try checking the dependencies - there are various ways of doing that both using the terminal and a graphical package manager. One easy way - for example if you're using the KDE Desktop - is to use the Apper utility:
1. Open Apper
2. Search for, and highlight, the package AdobeReader_enu (assuming you want the English-language version).
3. Click on the "More" drop-down arrow and select "Depends on".
4. Install any packages that are missing - these are most likely to be the "i686" packages.
5. If you still have problems, reinstall each package in turn.
If you can't locate a particular package to install it, use the "yum provides" command eg.
to find out what provides a particular package.
Hope this helps. Of course, you can do something similar using Yumex, or using terminal commands... whatever you prefer!
