Description of problem:
I downloaded the RPM version of Adobe Reader from www.adobe.com using today's build of Firefox (not Fedora Firefox). When asked, I chose launch the "Software Installer" to install the rpm. It crashes.

Here's the crash message:

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2006-10-19 20:53:03 UTC
Are you out of space on /var?

Comment 2 C. Applegate 2006-10-19 21:00:04 UTC
/var is on the / partition, which has 3.1GB (48%) free.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2007-04-09 20:00:23 UTC
Does this still occur for you?

Comment 4 C. Applegate 2007-04-10 05:21:48 UTC
No, it doesn't. pirut doesn't install the software, but it doesn't crash. I
don't know what the correct behavior for pirut is since I always use yum in a
shell. system-install-packages does install it. I am currently using the most
up-to-date software in FC6 and Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US;
rv:1.9a3pre) Gecko/20070321 Minefield/3.0a3pre.
