I build an SUN-package from the solaris binary tarball.
I did not recompiled openafs. So we all run the exactly same code.

The package is available here:


just install the package and then do:

echo openafs.org > /usr/vice/etc/ThisCell
/etc/init.d/afs start

Even if it was repulsive i used the afs.rc-script included in the binary
tarball distributed from openafs.org .

Since the afs.rc starts the bosserver if it is executable the bosserver
comes without x-bit, so default it is disabled.  do "chmod a+x bosserver"
to enable it.

The package uses transarc-paths since the binarytarball did.

It uses DYNROOT for /afs and AFSDB to locate cells.
Since everybody of you guys already know that i hate CellServDB/HOSTS.TXT
very much, you wont be surprised.

It comes with an cellservdb including all cells having an AFSDB-rr and were
up and running.

It uses 800MB of cache default.

It is only available for Solaris 9 for Sparc since i have no intrest in
other plattforms at the current time. I might do the soma thing for other
versions of solaris
