Hello Alex,

The prebuilt RPMs for Fedora 35 and Fedora 36 have been rebuilt to include =
latest changes in gerrit.openafs.org targeted for 1.8.x, including support =
linux 5.18.   The new packages for Fedora 36 are named *.sna3*.  If you
have a chance, can you try again?

If you rather build RPMs yourself, the current proposed stack for the next
1.8.x is available in gerrit.openafs.org.  The current top commit is 15065.
Checking out that commit will also checkout all the ones before it too.

    git fetch https://gerrit.openafs.org/openafs refs/changes/65/15065/1 &&=
 git checkout FETCH_HEAD

Then, you should be able to build and install using the same steps you used
before as shown on wiki.openafs.org (regen.sh, configure ..., make dist, et=

Finally, the "ltmain.sh" missing issue you encountered while trying to inst=
the openafs DKMS package is actually not related at all to Fedora, linux ke=
versions, nor the new version of autoconf on Fedora36.  It is just a build
regression on the master/1.9.x branch due to an unrelated change for Solaris
support.  There's a discussion in gerrit 15076 if you are curious. Thank you
for the report.

Many thanks,
