Dear Kalle,


Zitat von Karl-Philipp Richter <richter@richtercloud.de>:

> ... There're no system packages installed and OpenAFS and
> kerberos (in case that matters) are installed from source (OpenAFS
> openafs-devel-1_5_76-4781-ged52d65) and `lsmod | grep afs` shows:

Why aren't you using the OpenAFS/Kerberos packages that are shipped  
with Ubuntu? Current stable Linux releases are 1.6.x. OpenAFS 1.5.x is  
an older development branch, and its associated libafs kernel module  
will most likely fail to build on modern kernels. If you really need  
to build your own AFS, you should go for the latest 1.6 release that  
supports your kernel.
