Although acroread is in repositories it won’t install without basically changing my whole system to i586. What am I missing? This used to work. In fact I have installed AdbeRdr9.1.2-1_i486linux_enu.rpm [From get.adobe.com] in 11.1 x86_64 [currently] and was able to install same in Milestone 3 x86_64. I did a fresh install of Milestone 4 and have since enabled Factory repos. Here is some info:

In above example if I keep selecting to install i586 packages eventually it will quite literally change my entire system to i586. Not the desired result. Also in openSUSE in the past we have been able to install i586 software without this dependency mess.

Isn’t this because of something I forgot to install? I sure thought I selected ‘32bit runtime environment’ during install process so what did I miss?
P.S. I’m well aware of other software for pdf files. I have professional reasons for wanting Adobe Reader/Acrobat. I also have this installed on stable production systems openSUSE 11.1 x86_64 and Mandriva 2009.1 x86_64. Purpose here is to test some things I do professionally in 11.2 M4/Factory.
