Are you using the standard version from Acrobat?Hello!
Has anybody gotten Acrobat Reader 5.08 to work? It crashes here on several occasions:
1. Crashes with "Abort" on splash screen and about box (fixable by setting the locales to non-utf8 variants)
2. Hangs oder crashes when opening a document, pressing ctrl-f, entering a search term which is not in the document, after closing the dialog where is says "not found".
The first bug of course is easily handled by modifying the startup script, but the second bug is really annoying and makes the problem practically unusable.
I've tried setting LD_ASSUME_KERNEL to the various values and running it with libraries from RedHat 7.1 where the same binary works fine but none of this helped.
Acrobat Reader 4.05 does not have this problem, however there are some security issues with this version only fixed in 5.x.
xpdf/gpdf/gv are no real alternatives, as they still have problems displaying certain documents and miss some convenience features (thumbnails etc.).
I'd be very thankful for any hint how to solve this problem.

It seems to work fine for me (after setting LANG=C in the startup-script) and I'm using the rpm from:
Maybe that one will work better for you
