Good stuff.

I just want to announce that
SuSE rpms can be found on the buildservice:


, where
distributions are :
SUSE_Linux_10.0, SUSE_Linux_10.1, openSUSE_10.2, openSUSE_10.3, SLES_9
and SLE_10

architectures are
i586 and x86_64.

you might also use : http://software.opensuse.org/search

It is possible to integrate the buildservice-repository also in the
package-manager of your choice. Check out the tutorial.

There are two versions:
"openafs", in which the paths integrates in the OS-tree and
"openafs-transarc", which uses transarc-paths.

Unfortunately, I have not packaged any binary kernel-modules, except
some old standard ones.
Thus, use km_afs to compile the kernel module for your present kernel.

If you stumble across anything awry, just shout at me.

I guess future versions of openafs can be found there as well.

PS:  A note to packagers of other distributions:  It is indeed possible
to use this buildservice to package fedora, ubuntu, debian, mandriva
and some other distributions. Thus, if your short on hardware you might
give it a try.
The only thing I haven't figured out is how to build rpms depending on
rpm of different versions (that's why there are no binary kernel module
