It's in there (afs-krb5-2.0.tar.gz)

Do you mean the kernel module source RPM, or the openafs source
(openafs-1.3.85-src.tar.bz2)? If the latter, that's just an unmodified copy
of openafs.

Or are you trying to run the precompiled RPMs on SuSE? (after building the
correct kernel module)

All of the sources are in the .src.rpm file. Did you just want the contents
of SOURCES/ and SPECS/ packaged in their own .tar.gz?

Looks like it.

We're definitely making progress, I just test copied 283,292 files in 21,966
folders from an afs server to an NTFS hard drive with the 1.3.85 Win

There are about 500K files and 50K directories in my server. It's a good
test bed.

All - Keep up the good work.
