Re: afs?

Thanks to everyone's replies.  Summary of my expierence so far:

I tried ftp'n the package at the first replie's address, but the server was always full (didn't allow more anon users)

Next came the reply suggesting that arla would surely work, regardless of whether the port is broken or not. I went to arla's web page and found a freebsd 4.6 and higher binary package (I'm running 4.7-STABLE). I've installed this along with ports/security/krb5, and it all appears to be working for me (I can edit my files that exist in afs space on another server). So I'm stickin' with this, unless something comes up.

It appears OpenAFS is still in the works.

Thanks again to everyone for speedy replies and offerings of packages. I _really_ appreciate it.

Any tips for a random newby setting up a generic client?

There are currently some cache corruption problems with OpenAFS on
4-STABLE.  I'm working on porting it to -CURRENT (mostly involves changing
a bunch of type names, e.g., curproc -> curthread), though the corruption
problems will persist until someone can hunt them down.
