[OpenAFS] Serious problem upon rebuild

    I recently compiled my own custom kernel (2.4.19) and also 
downloaded the latest openafs src rpms (openafs-1.2.6-rh7.3.1.src.rpm). 
Following that, I moved the /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-3 directory elsewhere 
on the system (as it was interfering with my builds) and put two 
symlinks (linux and linux-2.4) pointing to linux-2.4.19 in /usr/src.

I now built from src using :

rpm --rebuild openafs-1.2.6-rh7.3.1.src.rpm

After a long process of compilation, it produced the following rpms :

[root@nanak openafs]# ls /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/openafs-*

Of these, I installed all (using -Uvh) but 
openafs-kernel-source-1.2.6-rh7.3.1.i386.rpm and 

Then I appropriately edited the CellServDB and ThisCell files (I just 
checked the availability of the top 3 hosts in CellServDB using ping - 
they are up).

Now when I bootup, I get to the stage where it says :

Found module libafs-2.4.19-LAPTOP-CUSTOM-17SEP2002-i686.o ...

and then it hangs.

What could be wrong ???
