Adobe Acrobat Reader (acroread) on Slackware64


So I have discovered the wonderful 32 bit compatibility packages at http://mirrors.vbi.vt.edu/mirrors/li...are64-current/. Thank you for these, as they allowed me to use my Brother MFC-5460CN printer again.

Now I'm trying to get Adobe Acrobat to run. The first thing it complained of was missing libxml2, so I thought I would try to build it. I used the slackbuilds at slamd64 as a model. config goes fine, but the make eventually dies with:

[CODE]
libxml.c: In function 'libxml_xmlValidCtxtGenericErrorFuncHandler':
libxml.c:1748: warning: unused parameter 'severity'
libxml.c: In function 'libxml_xmlValidCtxtGenericWarningFuncHandler':
libxml.c:1775: warning: unused parameter 'severity'
libxml.c: At top level:
libxml.c:2676: warning: no previous prototype for 'libxml_xmlNodeRemoveNsDef'
libxml.c: In function 'libxml_serializeNode':
libxml.c:2764: warning: unused variable 'len'
make[3]: *** [libxml.lo] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/tmp/libxml2-2.7.3/python'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/tmp/libxml2-2.7.3/python'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/libxml2-2.7.3'
make: *** [all] Error 2
[\CODE]

I guess that means I have to build a 32 bit compatible python?

It seems a bit more complex. What do I do about the patches in python in slackware64-current, do I use them?

Thanks for any help.

Brian

Once again Eric H. has solved my problem before I knew I had it. Thanks to the multilib system he provides I am able to run acroread. As a bonus Amarok 1.4 (slamd64 version) runs as well!

Thanks,

Brian
