Well, you could try the 1.4.0 RPMs, as they've been finished. However
the real point was to make sure that you could rebuild my RPMS on
x86_64 and that they would work.
Also, the 1.4.0 RPMS are done. There's time to get changes into the

I dont understand what configuration you think you need that you
can't set in the AFSD_ARGS and BOSSERVER_ARGS. Could you please
let me know?

Can you send me a patch for this, or at least suggest better text?
There's also the "rpmbuild -bb --target=i686 openafs...src.rpm" to
build a kernel-module RPM for the currently-running kernel.

Why will this cause a problem with up2date? Wont up2date already try
to install the most-recent kernel? As I asked in my last email, how
does up2date deal with the redhat-distributed LKM RPMS? Red hat must
have already solved this problem....

I was hoping to get an answer about x86_64, not x86. But thanks.
