Message: "Abort (core dumped)", running Acrobat

I'm quite a fan of Adobe Acrobat, and was also quite dissapointed when it wouldn't run. So I googled around but found nothing useful.

When '/usr/local/Acrobat5/bin/acroread' is run, I receive the message: "Warning: charset "UTF-8" not supported, using "ISO8859-1". Abort (core dumped)

Not a message that I can make too much sense of. Anyone else?

System is PII laptop, RH9.

As root, edit the acroread script:

Add the following lines just below #! /bin/sh

export LANG
I hope this solves your problem
