does it also happen with small files?
Open Abiword, type: "abc", and save as abc.pdf.
Then open that in the reader.

Yes, I did it and it happens the same....I don't think it's a problem of files, I tried starting "acroread" from terminal, without loading any file and it happens the same....
I still haven't fixed the problem with the html rendering library, can it be this?

What problem do you mean?

Maybe your libstdc++ is different from mine.
What do you get by typing:
ls -al /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6*

I get:
Code:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     18 2008-04-04 15:07 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6 -> libstdc++.so.6.0.8
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 906580 2007-02-15 04:39 /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6.0.8

ah no, that should not matter, as adobe uses the one in:
/usr/local/Adobe/Reader8/Reader/intellinux/lib/

You wrote, that you had to replace libstdc++.so.6?
Can you explain that more detailed, please?

You arrived before my answer Smile
Yes, I installed the Libstdc++.so.6.0.5.pup from http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Libraries/, then I have overwritten those in /usr/local/Adobe/Reader8/Reader/intellinux/lib/ with those I had in my /usr/lib. I had to do it, otherwise Acroread didn't start, it complained that the libstdc++ library couldn't handle TLS data (if I remember well the message)

Please try this one:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Libraries/Libstdc++.so.6.0.8.pup

I use Puppy 3, so I don't know if it works in Puppy 2. But it is worth a try.
I think I had used that in Puppy 2, too.

No way...I installed your .pup, then overwritten the libraries with the new ones, and
Code:

sh-3.00# acroread
/usr/local/Adobe/Reader8/Reader/intellinux/bin/acroread: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6: cannot handle TLS data

Crying or Very sad

MU, I think I've found the problem: the pc I was using is behind a proxy, I thought it was related to this, so I changed the internet preferences in acroread, adding the name of my proxy...I tried opening several files and the problem didn't arise again! This idea came up from the fact that in my home pc, which is not behind a proxy, acroread worked flawlessly.
I'll keep you updated!
Bye

Problem solved, MU! It was what I thought, this morning I've used acroread a lot, and no more high cpu usage problem! Hope this can be useful to others....
Bye and thanks again

Subject description: Acrobat Reader 8.1.1.1 with Puppy 2 series
 

Just for fun I tried the english sfs in Puppy 2.16.1
and installed the Libstdc++ pup
Running from the terminal I got neat spash screens, then the normal screen for half a second then it crashed with the following in the terminal as hate mail:

Fontconfig warning: line 241: saw bool, expected void
Fontconfig warning: line 253: saw bool, expected void
/usr/bin/acroread: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/mozilla/components/libgfx_gtk.so: undefined symbol: pango_xft_get_font_map

Not sure why really - could be the dodgy old version of seamonkey.
Looks like the binaries don't have kernel conflicts - should theoretically run in a 2 series pup if I can fix this small issue.

Any clues appreciated.

MU, having issues with libgtmozembed.so. I have firefox installedm, but doesn't seem to have this library. Searched my hard-drive and it's no where to be found.... so... Tried to pull it from an rpm package, and adobe wouldn't start when I put it in firefox, and when I tried to link it elsewhere it didn't work... Am downloading the latest seamonkey pet, and will try to pull it out of there. Barring that, any other advice? 'Ta.

Tried Seamonkey version of libgtkmozembed, same result. If it's put in /usr/lib/mozilla/firefox Abode Reader crashes on startup, if it's put in /usr/lib/mozilla, adobe can't find it. (both options are when adobe is configured to find it. Frustrating.

Dinky,

if you don't need the latest version, this is what I use:

ftp://147.52.159.12/mirrors/linux/slax/SLAX-5-modules/office/Acroread_7_0_5.mo

To get it working in puppy you just need to mount it as a .sfs & symlink the appropriate parts.

Thanks for the tip, version 7 works perfectly. Why do companies like adobe ruin perfectly good programs by adding unnecessary features? Thanks mate,
~dinky
p.s. didn't have to symlink anything in TigerPup! Just renamed it .sfs, mounted it at bootup, and after running "fixmenus" all was good. Cheers!
