Apologies if people are bored by this, but I've discovered more problems
with my RH 7.2 installation...
Some RPMs appear to be installed (rpm -qa shows them) but some files
from the packages aren't actually installed. Files so far that I've had
to re-install are:
uniprocessor kernel (I have an SMP system)
kernel-source (nothing appeared to be in /usr/src)
xfsprogs (fsck.xfs couldn't be found at boot)
kernel-headers (discovered when compiling openafs)
I'm not particularly worried by this as I was just playing around with a
new machine that arrived this week. Everything else seems to be working
fine (although the lack of documentation when playing with printconf was
quite annoying - no man pages at all for this beast - a growing Red Hat
worry with some of their config tools - where does printconf store it's
config files!!??....rant rant...)
Anyway, I am now totally happy with the system. OpenAFS was trivial to
build (version 1.2.2) and it's the first version I've tried since 1.0.4
that hasn't hung the system (it even manages to install the smp kernel
modules without me having to create sym links).
Next week I'll be trying to get the GRID tools
(http://www.gridpp.ac.uk/) working - is this of any interest to anyone -
if so I'll report back.
