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.
