Its worth noting that 1.4.1rc10 won't work on FC5 either. There are a 
couple of further problems.

*) FC5 shipped with a 2.6.16rc kernel pretending to be 2.6.15. This meant 
that some of the tests in OpenAFS don't pick up on the correct mechanisms 
to use with that kernel. In particular this means that the new module_parm
stuff won't get used, nor will the new kernel mutexes. Only the 
module_parm stuff is a problem. There's now an update for FC5 with a 'proper'
2.6.16 kernel, so this shouldn't be a problem on updated systems.

*) The problem with glibc, lwp, and setjmp that's been discussed on this 
list still exists - so aklog and friends will segfault. There was a patch 
posted previously and there's also different, cleaner, fix in the OpenAFS 
RT system.
