Ubuntu Jaunty

I did a clean install this week of Jaunty and as always, it has not failed to impress.

I wanted to get openafs working again, and I dug up these old notes from college I wrote nearly 3 years ago. Surprisingly they still work!

Copy krb5.conf to /etc/krb5.conf

sudo apt-get install krb5-user openafs-krb5

  • change default realm to ACM.UIUC.EDU (case matters)
  • Kerberos servers are and
  • admin server is

sudo apt-get install gcc-3.4 build-essential openafs-client

  • AFS Cell = (case matters)
  • default cache size is fine b/c you aren't going to use it.

sudo apt-get install module-assistant
sudo m-a prepare openafs-modules
sudo module-assistant auto-build openafs-modules
sudo dpkg -i /usr/src/openafs-modules-*.deb

cd /etc/openafs
sudo vim afs.conf

  • add: FNORD="-memcache -stat 10000 -blocks 65536 -chunksize 19"
    This sets a 64MB in-memory cache. If you want to use a disk cache you'll need to make sure that /var/cache/openafs is ext2 and its probably a good idea to dedicate a parition to it.

sudo vim afs.conf.client

  • change AFS_DYNROOT=false to true

sudo shutdown -r now "installing openafs"

When the box comes back up, you'll want to kinit userid and then type aklog. All of your afs stuff should be under /afs/clustername.
