- Start the installer:
bleonard@opensolaris:~$ pfexec ./Desktop/AdbeRdr9.1.0-1_i486solaris_enu.bin Extracting files, please wait. (This may take a while depending on the configuration of your machine) This installation requires 171 MB of free disk space. Enter installation directory for Adobe Reader 9.1.0 [/opt] /opt Installing platform independent files ... Done Installing platform dependent files ... Done Setting up libraries ...
