 linuxpluginwrapper and acroread7

Would it be possible for you guys to add some information to the linuxpluginwrapper page? It depends on acroread7, but that port won't install. I had to download the latest rpm myself and install it using rpm -i --ignoreos --root /compat/linux /usr/ports/distfiles/AdobeReader_enu-7.0.0-2.i386.rpm. This is not such a big deal, but it was kind of a pain in the ass. The problem is that acroread7 is apparently still looking for 7.0.0-1 and that file doesn't exist in any of the servers it's looking for. Without acroread7, it doesn't seem to want to install. If it's not possible for info to be added to the page here on FreshPorts, can someone pass this info along to the maintainers? Maybe this got fixed already, but my ports were cvsupped recently so I doubt that.

No, not us.

You should raise a PR to get the port fixed. FreshPorts just tells you about the dependencies recorded in the Makefile. If the Makefile is wrong, it should be corrected.

Tell the port maintainer and possibly the FreeBSD ports mailing list.

I have the same problem, adobe seems to have upgraded the version number. The new version is called: instead of AdobeReader_enu-7.0.0-1.i386.rpm

Edit this and linuxpluginwrapper will work. How do I get in contact with the maintainer of the acroread7 port to tell him to update the distinfo and all?

I've been at it all day... In my case the rpm wouldn't work either (I think it's because of using Xorg instead of XFree...), so I just created the directory (/compat/linux/usr/local/Adobe/Acrobat7.0/Browser/intellinux/), extracted there, then make install clean in /usr/ports/www/linuxpluginwrapper. Installation completes, then mv /usr/local/share/examples/linuxpluginwrapper/libmap.conf-FreeBSD5-stable /etc/libmap.conf.
I haven't tried viewing PDFs within the browser (I generally download them), but Shockwave & co. work!
