I updated the RHEL4 RPMs to the 1.3.85 release.

I made the following changes:

 	- since it appears to be under active development now, I packaged
 	  the aklog from the openafs source, instead of the one from the
 	  afs-krb5 migration kit.
 	- tweak the module version matching script to prefer modules for
 	  kernels with the same 'major release' number

I also included the patch from CVS to remove the debugging printk() from 
the kernel module. (linux-dynamic-inodes-20050713)

You can download the 1.3.85 packages for i386 and x86_64 from:


Note that the pam_krb5 module in RHEL4 is defective and will not work 
properly with AFS in many circumstances. I have entered bug reports and 
patches in bugzilla but Red Hat has not acted upon any of them. In the 
mean time you can download fixed pam_krb5 RPMs for i386 and x86_64 from 


I would especially be interested to know what people think of these 
packages; would these be suitable as a starting point for 'official' 
OpenAFS 1.4 RPMs?
