    Well your saying that with Adobe Acrobat just do it the
old way. So I am on the Adobe web page and it will be down in
15 minutes. It's a big program. And since this is how I used
to do it I will use rpm -i since I'm not upgrading anything.
No, you should use rpm -Uvh to install or upgrade packages. Use
rpm -i only when you want to install package even if there's an
older version (e.g. for kernel packages).
    Sorry, I own a copy of Maximum RPM and it goes into details for
every control letter. There is no old copy of Adobe Acrobat here. If
there was one it would error out telling me so. It didn't. It's
installed and working.

As a general rule, using `rpm -Uvh` is prefered over `rpm -ivh` for straight-up installs because of the reason described above.

Why ask for advice and then debate the answer?

Very curious,

The original question was, can you yum install adobe acrobat and the real answer is NO!
