I have installed OpenAFS-1.4.5-Leopard on an intel machine and a G5  
PPC.  No problems on intel, but on the G5 I get the following error  
message on afs startup:

Nov 15 09:15:08 maccmskel1 com.apple.SystemStarter[58]: /Library/ 
StartupItems/OpenAFS/OpenAFS: line 117: /var/db/openafs/etc/config/ 
afssettings: Bad CPU type in executable

line 117 is 	$CONFIG/afssettings

Despite this error, /afs is mounted at root level, and I have no  
problem with afs access from the terminal.  Even "open afs_file" from  
the command line manages to open the file in the appropriate  

The problem is that the afs volume is not visible in the Finder.

Have others had better experience with OpenAFS-1.4.5-Leopard on a PPC  
machine?  Is there a work-around to make /afs visible in the Finder?   
Is there a fix for what appears to be the non-universal afssettings?

    Yours,   Richard Kellogg
