How to export the syscall table in 2.4.x vanilla (kernel.org) kernel? I
am not aware of "menuconfig" option for it... But I could be mistaken...

2.4.30 is the kernel.org download, the 2.4.24 is either the kernel.org
or Debian/Woody (I tried both, if I remember well).

The message (from afsd) is basically "Error in basic initialisation" +
something "not implemented in the server". "afsd -verbose", gives me -1
result in some system calls.


PS: It is not a problem at the moment but I would like to understand
this as we run couple of 1.2.x OpenAFS servers and clients... I could
find myself upgrading them to the latest 1.2.x OpenAFS servers/clients
and want to make sure that it will work. By the way, the systems are
mainly Debian/Woody + one Debian/Sarge.
