[OpenAFS] Compiling on Redhat 8.0
Sun, 27 Jul 2008 14:09:44 -0700
I am compiling 1.4.7 on Redhat 8.0. It's working fairly well. The
service even worked. I noted that I hadn't installed a new kernel
module. I figured that wasn't good.
So I set about getting an updated kernel module installed. I'm
unfamiliar with building on linux. I have kernel version 2.4.18-14.
The build creates libafs-2.4.18-14custom.o. Apparently there is some
internal indication of the kernel version built into the module. How
can I set that? I see nothing that ./configure controls regarding
How/where do I get the SymTable? I noticed that none is installed but
that ./init.d/afs is looking for it in /usr/vice/etc/modload. This
SymTable is needed to determine the value of LIBAFS which is then loaded
into the kernel.
I just noticed the dates on the files of my old install. I have been
running 1.2.8 for five years!
