openafs.SLx - OpenAFS Distributed Filesystem

License: IBM Public License
Vendor: Scientific Linux
Description:
The AFS distributed filesystem.  AFS is a distributed filesystem
allowing cross-platform sharing of files among multiple computers.
Facilities are provided for access control, authentication, backup and
administrative management.

This is the source package common to all builds on Scientific Linux 3, 4, 5.
The is no corresponding binary package. Instead, all binary packages have
their conventional names, and a suffix .SL3 (4, 5) added to the package
release.

Rebuilding this SRPM will yield all the userspace packages, or a kernel module
package for one particular kernel, or both - depending on circumstances:

o Without extra switches, the userland packages are built.

o For those kernel archs that are not identical to the base arch (i686, ia32e),
  using "--target" to build for this arch will result in building only the
  kernel module package.

o One can force what to build using "--define 'build_userspace 1'" or
  "--define 'build_modules 1'". If either of those is defined on the
  command line, the other defaults to 0.

o By default, the kernel module is built for the running kernel. To change
  this, use "--define 'kernel <Version-ReleaseVariant>'". The right value
  is the output "uname -r" would yield under the desired kernel. An SMP
  kernel should usually be detected correctly. If this fails, use
  "--define 'is_smp 1'".

On SL3, the matching kernel-source package must be installed. If the
user running rpmbuild is not allowed to write in the kernel source tree,
a temporary copy will be created, configured correctly, and fed to the openafs
build. On SL4 and later, just the matching kernel-devel package is required.

The following server features are by default turned on but can be disabled
from the build command line:

   To disable            build with
   ===================   ==============================
   bitmap-later          --without bitmap_later
