Well, since you just said "it failed" without posting any details, I can
only guess what problems you might be encountering.
In order to get OpenAFS to work with a 2.6.12 kernel with swsusp2, you will
need to undo a change made by the swsusp2 patches to the last line of
Without this change, the OpenAFS module will fail to load. I reported this
problem to the suspend2 maintainer a while ago, and while he says he made
the change, it hadn't been integrated as of 22.214.171.124 (I haven't looked yet
at 126.96.36.199, which is the latest version available for Linux 2.6.12).
To build against Linux 2.6.13, you will likely need the latest OpenAFS
release candidate, released today. Unfortunately, we've just gotten word
that the source tarball on the web site is broken, so you might want to
wait a few hours until it's been replaced with a corrected one.
