#34 OpenAFS support


Is there any plan for supporting OpenAFS?

I used colinux-0.6.3-pre13 based on a gentoo image. I
have been able to use the OpenAFS package compiled with
vannila 2.6.11 kernel source. It worked pretty well
although sometimes the afs connection got broken and I
had to restart the service.

But then a recent windows xp update is in conflicts
with colinux. So I had to update my colinux to version
0.6.4. However, this time I could not start the afs
service. The error message said 'invalid module
format'. As I understand, 0.6.4 uses the same version
of kernel(2.6.11). I tried to recompile OpenAFS, but to
no avail. Can somebody help?

    Probably this is a compiler version mismatch between the copmiler used to compile the
    kernel and the compiler used to compile the OpenAFS module.

    Closing this support request. There should be no reason the module (compiled with the right ABI & against the right version of kernel) shouldn't load and run. If you continue to experience problems getting this to work/worked out. Check the mailing list archives for details of what compiler might be needed, etc. Or post with your specific problems and we'll try to help you through them.
