With both, I run into the same problem compiling on FreeBSD 8.1. http://svn.freebsd.org/viewvc/base?view=revision&revision=209524 changed the definition of ifa_ifwithnet. In rx/rx_kernel.h, FreeBSD 8.1 needs the same definition of rx_ifaddr_withnet as AFS_OBSD46_ENV (while FreeBSD 8.0 needs the generic one). Should FreeBSD 8.0 still be supported?
I'll try to get that fix in this weekend (if not sooner). I only have 9-current test boxes, and I think Derrick only has 8.0, so 8.1-specific things would otherwise rely on me noticing relevant changes in the commit emails that go by; this doesn't work very well when I don't have much time to read them :)
That fix is in the tree -- thanks!
With the git based port, I get an error on "kldload libafs": "can't load libafs: Exec format error" (missing symbol?) -- openafs-1.5.75 (the other port) does not seem to have this problem.
Sounds like someone introduced a regression since then; thanks for the report.
This one proves to be quite a bit more difficult; if you look at the console when you try to load the module (or in dmesg), it complains about a particular undefined symbol, afs_FlushVS. This function is supposed to be called when we are short on cache space (and other things) and need to reclaim space. However ... it isn't implemented anywhere. This codepath changed with commit d29643b0553011cbe60dd127fd31c1847fe02ddb, which enabled disconnected mode always for unix clients -- the old version (for non-disconnected mode) used a different function. It will probably be a while before we rewrite things properly (as it is not exactly clear what "properly" means, at least to me).
