Does anyone know if Flash 9 works on pcbsd?  In fact, I use current  
and it works but hangs probably 4 times a day and I have to kill the  
linux pviewer.bin processes and restart apache to continue.  It is  
much better than nothing though.  I'm still using wine with windows  
firefox and flash doesn't give me any problems but I have problems  
with character sets so I use it only for flash.
