I have another error on the client, with a tcpdump file of 1.6GB.
This time I don't see any message about problems with the AFS on the
client or the fileserver, that's really strange.

The error message about kernel compilation was:

 ld: final link failed: File truncated
make[1]: *** [fs/built-in.o] Error 1
make: *** [fs] Error 2
make: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs....
Erro Inesperado

I am looking inside the file with ethereal, but as expected anything I
try todo is very slow.

I can arrange a way to send you the file, if you want it.
