I've placed a new version of the MIT binary distribution of AFS 3.3 for
NetBSD into the afs-contrib area
(/afs/transarc.com/public/afs-contrib/bin/netbsd.client). I'm calling
this release "1.15" (bumping release numbers to match what's printed out
at modload time). As usual, contact your site AFS administrator to get
access to these files (access is restricted to sites licensed for the
AFS client code).
This release fixes a serious bug. Earlier versions do not honor
requests to set file system modification times on AFS files. [You would
see this with something like 'cp -p' or 'tar xvf <tarfile>']
The following NetBSD ports are supported:
HP300/m68k4k: compiled for 1.0 and -current
sparc: compiled for 1.0 and -current
i386: compiled for 1.0 and -current
If you have another NetBSD port for which you'd like AFS built, and can
provide network access to same, please contact me privately to see if we
can make porting arrangements.
The distributions themselves are constructed as a "package" (a stylized
compressed tar file with install script support). You can fetch the
package tools: via FTP from either
ftp.netbsd.org:/pub/NetBSD/packages/tools/binaries/NetBSD-1.0/i386/pkg_install.tar.gz (i386 binaries).
I intend to put source diffs into the Transarc source sharing area, but
I'm still waiting on final approval from MIT. I apologize for the
delay. I will announce a source diff release when it is prepared and
ready for external use. The source diffs will only be available to
Transarc source licensees.
MD5 hashes of the distribution:
A BETSI certificate will be obtained shortly and placed with these files.
