PDF that crashes redhat's acroread
Description of problem:
acroread is missing the PPKLite.api plugin and therefore exits with a return code of "1" when trying to open digitally signed PDFs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. acroread <a digially signed PDF>
Exits immediatly with a return code of "1"
The release notes in the RPM say...
* Thu Jul 07 2005 Dan Williams <firstname.lastname@example.org> 7.0.0-4
- Remove PPKLite plugin (for now) because it depends on OpenLDAP libs
Perhaps it is time to put that plugin back in. The RPM downloaded
from adobe.com does not have this problem. I am attaching a PDF that
breaks with acroread-8.1.3 from redhat.
I just tried acroread-8.1.4 RPM and it has the same problem. If I copy the
PPKLite.api from the RPM released by Adobe into /usr/lib/acroread/Reader/intellinux/plug_ins, then the acroread from Redhat works as expected with
digitally signed PDFs.
Seriously, can you guys put this file back in your RPM?
