Hi,

  The subject says it all. If the answer is yes, I am particularly
interested in whether Adobe Arcobat reader runs O.K.?

Thanks.

  NetBSD/sparc does have a binary compatibility mode with SunOS,
though I don't know if Adobe Acrobat works (never used it myself)..

  it might be worth trying though..

I've run Netscape, WordPerfect, and FrameMaker under NetBSD/sparc.
I don't know if that particular application works, but given the
COMPAT_SUNOS's great track record, I'd be willing to bet that it would.
If it didn't, the KTRACE facility is a wonderful way of seeing what is
happening at the syscall level.
