I am using the packaged openafs that suse put in 9.3. It is openafs
1.3.78... I had to make some changes the suses configuration scripts,
but it all works fine. I am using the smp kernel as well.
18.104.22.168-20a-smp on a dell precision dual xeon box.
I attempted to compile openafs 1.3.8x, but if the make fails beyond
the ./configure, make, make install, I don't know enough to fix
things. Well, the build failed. Which is why I used the suse openafs
rpms. It was a big enough pain to fix their scripts.
why not just use the suse rpms since they are the same version you
