Linux compatibility doesn't work on my alpha. The acroread version that
worked was the dec/osf one, with osf compatibility enabled. But just
downloading and installing this version from the Adobe site doesn't work
also. The ports version had a patch to get it to work.

I looked at the mailing list archives but couldn't find anything about
this. I did send this mail to the alpha list first but I didn't get any
answer, so sent it also to the questions list. A lot more people read it,
perhaps also someone that has a solution.
Q: How many IBM cpu's does it take to do a logical right shift?
A: 33. 1 to hold the bits and 32 to push the register.
