[OpenAFS] Install OpenAFS on ppc64?
Tue, 23 Aug 2011 08:56:11 +0800
I know that judging from those error code -1 of the debug output,
it looks like the problem is about module. However, I can see
openafs module from lsmod even after the failure. 'dmesg' also shows:
Cache bypass pathed libafs module init.
Moreover, as I mentioned, I compiled those RPMs from the SRPM, and
all of those RPMs are ppc64 arch.
(Though I did notice when I used 'file' to check those binary files,
more of them are reported as 32-bit. The module itself is 64-bit.)
