i'm interested in getting an AFS server setup, but openAFS
1.3.87 will not compile from source on 3.8-current (same as
i also noticed that ober had posted a "howto" for getting
openAFS working on openbsd 3.7 (see
http://www.linbsd.org/afs_on_openbsd_client.html), but this
doesn't work when compiling from source since it requires the
--with-afs-sysname to be set to i386_obsd3X where X only goes
up to 6. when i set it to i386_obsd36, i get an error when i
make and i get an error when i configure if i don't set
--with-afs-sysname. i can post the configure/build errors if
anyone thinks i should, and they are easily reproducible.
i've also looked at arla and found it worrisome when reading
the notes on installation from source for version 0.40.0 and
seeing the following:
(from section on "quirks" of running arla)
You can not load kernel modules (the modload step) when your
securelevel is above zero. There are two ways to make sure
can load kernel modules:
* You can compile a new kernel with "option INSECURE". This
the securelevel be zero in multiuser. Then you can load
with the above commands. Some people might consider this a
* You can load the modules in /etc/lkm.conf (for NetBSD) or
/etc/rc.securelevel (for OpenBSD)."
recompiling my kernel so that it can run in securelevel 0
doesn't seem like a good thing to do.
i noticed that the release notes for 3.8 state that Arla
0.35.7 is part of the base system. i assume this is only the
AFS client, afsd, and not the server daemons since i can't
find anything useful besides the afsd manual page.
could someone point me clue me in as to how i can get an AFS
server up and running on 3.8-current? i hope this is doable,
although the archive post i referenced above leads me to
