#27 closed bug (wontfix)

AdobeReader_enu.i486 doesn't install dependencies.

Reported by: prentice@… Owned by: thomas
Priority: major Component: Desktop
Version: 6.0 (Pisa) Keywords: Acrobat Reader Adobe dependencies
Cc: puias-trac@…

Description (last modified by thomas)

It's yum that isn't smart enough to pull in the i686 deps for the package. Also, some of those deps aren't normal deps for the package, sssd-clients can be assumed to be installed normally, so it wouldn't get pulled anyway.

We have a page on 64-bit issues at http://puias.math.ias.edu/wiki/64BitIssues

AdobeReader? is on that page as a problem package.

Josko has a solution to the yum/kickstart issue that I will attempt to document soon...

Either way it's an upstream bug that we probably can't fix for everyone...

 My kickstart includes AdobeReader_enu.i486, so I expected all its
 dependencies to be automatically installed. However, when I ran it, I got
 a bunch of errors.

 After digging around and using strace, I ended up installing all the rpms
 listed below manually. Only a handful were directly required by
 AdobeReader. The rest were in turn required by those dependencies.

 Shouldn't kickstart/rpm know AdobeReader requires the i686 versions of
 these RPMs and install them automatically? Do the dependencies need to be
 updated in the AdobeReader to specify the i686 versions?

 I'm listing the priority as major since acroread is highly utilized
 program.
