Hi Codafiers,

Apparenetly I need some help getting my coda client running.  As you
may recall, I am running redhat 4.2 with the 1.2.30 kernel, which gave
me some trouble.  So, following Peter's advice, I downloaded the src
rpm and rebuilt it.  Now my machine says it is running coda when I
login to it.  I tried mounting the test filesystem, but I could not
figure out the magic incantation.

I set up /usr/coda/etc/venus to contain this line

I did 
% /usr/sbin/venus

And this is what my venus.log contains

[ X(00) : 0000 : 00:10:37 ] Coda Venus, version 4.1 (27)
[ X(00) : 0000 : 00:10:37 ] LOGFILE initialized with LogLevel = 0 at Thu Jul 10 00:10:37 1997

[ X(00) : 0000 : 00:10:37 ] ProfInit(): profiling is broken; fix it![ X(00) : 0000 : 00:10:37 ] minimum MLEs is 128

What am I doing wrong?  What is an MLEs?  Is the "profiling is broken;
fix it!" message important.

Can you give me advice as to how to get my coda client going?  Maybe I
didn't build it properly...

   You must be running a kernel for which the module is not compatible
   (2.0.30 is known to behave like this). 

   Simple solution: download the src rpm and rebuild it.  If that is a
   problem let me know.  I'd be happy to run 2.0.30 kernels myself if those
   are the most popular ones out there; then I could easily compile. What do
   you think?

   Clearly it's impossible to compile for every possible kernel, but I can
   try to be helpful.
