Coda File System

4.6.0 == No Go

I am experiencing problems with the coda 4.6.0 distribution.  I've
installed it on two systems, running linux 2.1.106 and 2.1.108p1
respectively.  The 2.1.106 box is an otherwise-standard RedHat 5.1
installation (glibc) and I used the binary rpm from your ftp site.
The 2.1.108p1 box runs an older distribution (libc-5.4.44) with the
Coda binaries built from source.

On both machines, rvm setup fails with:

Rdsinit will initialize data and log.
This takes a while.
rvm_initialize succeeded.
Going to initialize data file to zero, could take awhile.
?  ERROR: rds_zap_heap RVM_EINTERNAL.
Error in rdsinit. Exiting.

Next, when trying to start the server:

00:19:15 Setting Rvm Truncate threshhold to 5.

Error rvm_load_segment returns 201
00:19:15 rds_load_heap error RVM_EINTERNAL

This appears in the SrvErr log:

Assertion failed: file
"/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/coda-4.6.0/coda-src/vice/", line 1805

Please let me know if more information is needed.
