Hi Jan

You can "fix" it here and now by allowing applications from anywhere... (it=
 doesn=B4t make sense to me)

"System-Preferences" -> "Security & Privacy"  on the general tab bottom sec=
"Set Allow applications downloaded from:"  change it to "anywhere" and it w=

Note that this will change the security level on the machine

Subject: [OpenAFS] Error opening files on AFS in MacOSX

Hi all,

I am running OpenAFS 1.6.5 client on MacOSX 10.9.1 (Mavericks).=20
Sometimes (very hard to tell under which circumstances), when I am trying t=
o open (ususally PDF) files on AFS with Preview.app or "Adobe Acrobat Pro.a=
pp" I get the following error:

"file.pdf" is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

Preview.app fails to open also other non-pdf files, e.g. images.
However, if I copy the file to the local file system, it opens without prob=

Does someone know if it is a MacOSX issue or if there is a problem with the=
 OpenAFS client? If I knew how, I could provide more information.

Thank you for your help in advance.
