We just did a push out of 1.3.70 on some of our machines (we especially
have need for the large file support in the new software). We use the
2.0 of the NRL AFS-Kerberos 5 migration kit to obtain tokens from
Kerberos 5 TGTs, and found I had to apply the following patch to make it

So far, I've built the 1.3.70 software for our Solaris 8 (clients), AIX
4.3.3 (32-bit client) and RedHat 9 (client and server). Initial results
are as follows:

* the Solaris 8 clients are working fine

* the AIX 4.3.3 install had some minor glitches - one initial discovery
was that the cfgafs binary was compiled during the build, but install
did not place it into rs_aix42/dest/root.client/usr/vice/etc/dkload like
cfgexport was. Another that I'll need to dig into is that if one is
using the tcsh shell and performs a tab-complete on a file in AFS space,
AIX suffers a kernel panic.

* RedHat 9 server binaries work - haven't had a chance to test out the
client binaries yet.

I'll keep the list posted as to what else I discover... Thanks!!
