Yes, you are rught. That's why I have taken the sources of
openafs-1.3.70. In the same section on the same README file one can
already find i386_linux26 like sys_name. That's why I am trying to
install this version of openafs on 2.6.7
all day long I am trying to install a client openafs 1.3.70 on my Debian
3.0 with kernel 2.6.7. Is there somwhere a simple manual how to do that?
I downloaded the sources from
If I remember correctly, using openafs with the 2.6 kernel branch is
still a problem. If you take a look at (if you have installed
in section A. 1. there is no AFS sys_name for the 2.6 series, which
may be an indication that it is not working. Unfortunately the Linux
AFS FAQ at http://www.umlug.umd.edu/linuxafs/ is not online.
Using Kernels from 2.4.22 up to 2.4.27 I never had problems (woody and
sarge). I built my modules from the Debian source package using make-kpkg
(a great tool).
1. apt-get install openafs-modules-source kpkg
2. cd /usr/src ; tar xzf /usr/src/openafs.tar.gz
3. cd /usr/src/linux
4. make-kpkg modules_image
5. install Debianpackage in /usr/src
Worked fine for me.
The latest which I tried was jyst following the instructions in
openafs-1.3.70-doc.tar.bz2 <http://www.openafs.org/dl/openafs/1.3.70/openafs-1.3.70-doc.tar.bz2> in "AFS Quick Start Guide for UNIX".
All worked quite fine, even
worked. Than following the instructions, one should restart. On that
point my machine did not boot.... The steps performed follow:
tar -jxvf openafs-1.3.70-src.tar.bz2
./configure --with-afs-sysname=i386_linux26 --enable-transarc-paths
cp -rp i386_linux26/dest/root.client/usr/vice/etc/modload /usr/vice/etc/
cp -p i386_linux26/dest/root.client/usr/vice/etc/afs.rc /etc/rc2.d/afs

ln -s libafs-2.6.7.ko libafs-2.6.7.o
ln -s libafs-2.6.7.mp.ko libafs-2.6.7.mp.o
