I'm kind off relying in the company to access our Novell infrastructure (NW6.5, some very few OES2, more to come).
Since the 2.6.29 kernels (might have been .28.. not to sure.) the novfs kernel module is no longer shipped
Um, we don't "ship" a 2.6.29 kernel yet. Or are you referring to the 11.2 snapshot and/or the FACTORY kernel? If so, we just haven't updated the novfs kernel module to work properly with the kernel changes upstream yet.
and the one shipped with the novell client (yaiks) does not compile properly anymore. Is there any chance to get this piece working again? (For the time being I 'work around' using ncpmount, but it has it's limitations and the client is just some more 'comfort' on top of it all (ncpmount/ncpfs does not allow for accessing files > 4GB for example).
It should be working in time for the 11.2 opensuse release, and I wouldn't be trusting my company infrastructure on a experimental release just yet :) And can't you just use the cifs module instead? I'd strongly recommend using that as the novfs code has some known issues that can't be worked around. thanks, greg k-h -- To unsubscribe, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org For additional commands, e-mail: email@example.com
