Acrobat Reader 7.0.8 on Itanium HPUX 11iv2

Hi,

Has any one been able to use Acrobat Reader 7.0.8 on Itanium/HP-UX 11iv2?

I did everything by the book, but it's not working:

# ./acroread
/usr/lib/dld.sl: Can't find path for shared library: libgdk_pixbuf_xlib-2.0.sl
/usr/lib/dld.sl: No such file or directory
ARIES32: Core file for PA32 application saved to /opt/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/bin/core.acroread
Abort(coredump)

I did this:

http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/acrrsystemreqs.html#708hp

and this:

http://www.adobe.com/support/techdocs/333102.html

I'm getting nuts $:-)

Thks!

Are you also running PA-RISC on Itanium ?!

Hi,
sorry to see that my answer didn't really help answer your question.

Please re-read my first post.
I suspect you have a 32bit PA-RISC version of the software and are trying to run it on a Itanium 64bit.
32bit PA-RISC code will not run on Itanium 64bit, it means complete rebuilt of libs etc.
The link you downloaded from spcifically states "PA-RISC" !

Re: Acrobat Reader 7.0.8 on Itanium HPUX 11iv2

Hi Peter,

I downloaded the only version available for HPUX, I was confused because it mentioned HP-UX11iv2 and I thought this was for Itanium, but HPUX11iv2 also runs on PA-RISC, right? (We have more than 100 PA-RISC servers running HP-UX11i, but this is my first Itanium box..)

So, the conclusion is that Acrobat Reader is not available for Itanium?

Thks.

Pedro,
correct! As far as I know there is no itanium version downloadable. The pre-reqs at http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/acrrsystemreqs.html#708hp specify PA-8800 as minimum (i.e PA-RISC). Some PA-RISC programs can be re-compiled with the correct libraries, but there is no guarantee that the code will work!

Hope this answers your question.
Can you please award final points, summarise and close the thread.

Hi Peter,

Do you know if there is any available PDF plugin for Mozilla that I can use on Itanium?

Thks.

Pedro,
sorry to see:
1-3: The answer didn't really help answer my question, but thanks for your assistance!

You would be better off, closing the thread an opening a new topic one, unless this is the 10 point answer.

Hi Peter,

Unfortunatelly none of your answers really helped me to solve this issue.

But, many, many, many, many thanks for your time.

By the way I'm ready to give you 10 points as soon as I have this issue solved with your help!

But again, thank you very much.

Pedro,

Problem:
You want to read PDF on Itanium ?

Solution:
http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/hpux/X11/Misc/xpdf-3.01pl2/

All my previous answers were trying to explain that the version of Acrobat you had would not run on Itanium without major rework.

Hi Peter,

Not yet, I've been too busy preparing a general production shutdown in my company this weekend :-)
