I have "acroread9" installed because I write and frequently need to fill
in online interactive PDF forms.

I have Adobe Pro XI installed on a Windows 8.1 machine to create and
modify interactive PDFs. It is the only program that I am aware of that
can accomplish this. I was trying to to insure that the forms work
correctly under different OSs. Using Firefox and its built in PDF
program fails miserably. It cannot utilize the interactive properties of
the PDF. I installed acroread9, but it simply crashes a few seconds
after it starts.

$ acroread9

=46rom the /var/message log:

Dec  5 05:45:33 scorpio kernel: linux: pid 31377 (acroread): syscall inotif=
y_init not implemented

Is this a known issue? If so, then why is the application in the ports
system if it will not run? If not, what do I have to do to get it to
run successfully?
