    Ok i have installed neon and devfs2 both without error.  I try to mount a directory on my webdav server and I get the error:
    mount.davfs: Could not open /dev/davfs0:
            Kernel does not support coda,or the coda-module is not loaded.

    How do I go about getting this installed and working properly.  I wasn't really able to find anything that pertained to this in this forum or google.  Is there a way to do this without recompiling a new kernel?

    According to the directions there should have been created a directory under my kernel sources under fs called davfs but there is none.  Was wondering if I was doing something wrong.

    OS: Fedora Core 4
    Davfs2-0.2.7
    neon-0.24.7
    Kernel 2.6.11-1.1369-FC4 (default FC4 kernel)

    thanks!

      To see whether your kernel supports coda, you may issue the command
      $ cat /proc/filesystems
      to get a list of all filesystems the kernel currently supports.
      If coda is not mentioned, there may still be a coda module that has to be loaded. Do (as root)
      # modprobe coda
      If there is no error message coda should now be available. If you get an error saying no coda module could be found, you indeed need another kernel with coda support.
