Adobe reader won't run.


Fedora 14, Adobe Reader-9.4-1_i486

I cannot get Adobe Reader to work. I have installed several times.

Error message:

Can't launch Adobe reader 9.4-1 Please make sure it exists in PATH variable in the environment. If problem persists, please reinstall the application.

Doing RPM or BIN install, it will make no difference .

This is the Error Message;
$ acroread
/opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread: error while loading shared libraries:
libcrypto.so.0.9.8: cannot enable executable stack as shared object requires: Permission denied


But in Fedora 14 you will have to do this, if AcroBat is installed at /opt .

chcon -t execmem_exec_t '/opt/Adobe/Reader9/Reader/intellinux
/bin/acroread'

I had to do that on two Fedora 14 Laptops and one PC to get acroreader to
excute.
