Alfresco 3.4 flash preview fix

Just a quick fix to WebPreview issue by Alfresco 3.4.c Community edition on Linux…

Missing flash preview of contents occured by an invalid symbolic link in “/opt/alfresco-3.4.c/common/lib/” folder. You can test it with manual start of “pdf2swf” command:

root@ubuntu:/opt/alfresco-3.4.c/common/bin# ./pdf2swf
/opt/alfresco-3.4.c/common/bin/.pdf2swf.bin: error while loading shared libraries: /opt/alfresco-3.4.c/common/lib/libstdc++.so.5: file too short

The fix is really simple, create a new symlink:

root@ubuntu:/opt/alfresco-3.4.c/common/lib# mv libstdc++.so.5 libstdc++.so.5.bad

root@ubuntu:/opt/alfresco-3.4.c/common/lib# ln -s libstdc++.so.5.0.3 libstdc++.so.5

root@ubuntu:/opt/alfresco-3.4.c/common/bin# ./pdf2swf
Usage: /opt/alfresco-3.4.c/common/bin/.pdf2swf.bin [-options] file.pdf -o file.swf
...

Update: installer bug already exists on 3.4d release…
