#18 explodes on ppc


version 0.2.2 works with idisk.mac.com fine with a i386
box with kernel 2.4.10 but gives a kernel oops on a ppc
with kernel version 2.4.9

'mount.davfs' Last syscall:

and so on...

To get davfs to link I had to change a loader flag in
davfs/Makefile from
LDFLAGS = -m elf_i386 -r
LDFLAGS = -m elf32ppc -r

When I first tried the mount it messed up my X
framebuffer screen. The second time I tried it gave me
a login and auth but hung on the password.

    I also found that I had to change the LDFLAGS to make the
    kernel module compile, however I just removed it
    altogether. This causes 'unresolved symbols' errors when
    doing a 'depmod -a'. mount.davfs
    http://idisk.mac.com/myusername -u myusername -p letmein
    fails on the mount() call after the fork(). Specifically,
    mount() returns -1 ENOTDIR (Not a directory). The error is
    'mount: Not a directory'. I guess I'll just have to come
    back later when things are working better!
