There's a few general things you can check - that the kernel module is =
running (although this normal manifests itself as a "Function not =
implemented" error), and that SELinux isn't ruining your day (look for =
"avc: denied" messages in dmesg).

However, I doubt many folk on this list will have much experience with =

reproduce the problem using either the OpenAFS RPMs, or by building from =
our source tarballs.
