  • robatino - I simplified the instructions for the 32-bit wrapped plugin in 64-bit Fedora, by specifying two yum install commands, instead of one. The intent is that the first command will pull in the 32-bit libstdc++, which will prevent Adobe Reader from being pulled in as a dependency. But I'm worried that if the Adobe repo is enabled before the first command is run, the Reader might get pulled in anyway, instead of libstdc++. If this is possible, then I should modify the instructions so the Adobe repo is only enabled after the first yum install command. Anyone know?) In any case, it shouldn't be necessary to exclude the Adobe Reader. It's just a matter of getting 32-bit libstdc++ installed - after that, everything should be fine.)
  • robatino - I tried enabling the Adobe repo in 64-bit Fedora 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and Rawhide, then running the first command. It never pulled in Adobe Reader. That doesn't prove that it can't happen (say, with a different set of packages either installed or in the repos), though, so would still like to hear from anyone who knows for sure.
