Dear OpenAFS,
  I'm trying to upgrade our servers to openafs 1.6.5.  One sunx86 is currently
running 1.4.12.  I downloaded the binary for openafs 1.6.5 and tried
to use it but it gives the error:
# /etc/init.d/afs start
Entry for afs already exists in /etc/name_to_sysnum
Loading NFS server kernel extensions
Loading AFS kernel extensions
Starting AFS Server processes
ld.so.1: bosserver: fatal: libkrb5.so.1: open failed: No such file or directory
26914 Killed

I see there is no libkrb5.so standard on solaris x86, so I linked
over an (old, sorry) patched MIT krb 1.5.4 set of libraries
into /usr/lib/krb5 but this set included libkrb5.so.3.2
not libkrb5.so.1  Do I need to downgrade my kerberos system further?
Or do I need to compile from source?

Best regards,
P.S. direct reply will get to me faster since I digest openafs-info
