I followed instructions for installing Adobe AIR 1.5 on 64-bit Fedora 10 at <http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/408/kb408084.html#Installing_AIR_1.5_on_64-bit_Fedora_10>. However, upon completing yum installs, and trying to install AIR after making it executable, I get:
Error loading the runtime (/tmp/air.pe4fqq/build/opt/Adobe AIR/Versions/1.0/libCore.so: cannot enable executable stack as shared object requires: Permission denied)
Trying to install as root gives the same result.
Appreciate your help. Thank you.
The problem is that SELinux blocks executable stack usage. (The REAL problem may actually be that Adobe's binary allows for executable stack usage). I encountered the same error on 32-bit Fedora 12. To fix it:
# chmod +x AdobeAIRInstaller.bin
# setsebool -P allow_execstack=1
Hope that does it for you.
