I've been getting decent results on SuSE 9.3 running the CVS version of the
OpenAFS kernel module with the SuSE 9.3 supplied rpms.
I set the kernel in /usr/src/linux up to build against by doing a
cp /boot/symvers-188.8.131.52-20a-i386-default.gz /usr/src/linux/Module.symver.gz
I build the kernel module from CVS by doing a CVS update, then running
./configure --with-linux-kernel-headers=/usr/src/linux --sysconfdir=/etc/openafs
Then I copy the libafs ko file into /lib/modules/'uname -r`/extra/libafs.ko
I'm curious about what you had to change in the SuSE init scripts? The
only changes I had to
make to configure were in /etc/sysconfig/afs-client, where I set it to
not regenerate cell info
and to use the disk cache. So, I didn't have to change the scripts at all.
