[OpenAFS-devel] Building openafs for old glibc 2.0.x?
11 Dec 2000 13:26:04 -0500
Ok, provided you're running a 2.2 kernel, then I suppose that
OpenAFS will work. Feel free to try building from my SRPM,
it should work. Note that you'll have a 'bad' sysname (since
RH 5.2 should use i386_linux3, not i386_linux22 that you'll get
from the RPM).
PS: I think static linking would be a Bad Idea (TM). Indeed, I'd like
to see the AFS libraries changed into shared libraries. The apps are
large enough as they are.
