Coda File System

Coda on Linuxppc progress

Well, I switched my system to a pre-release of glibc-2.1 (glibc-2.0.95)
after some obnoxious problems with g++ under the glibc-1.99 that linuxppc
is currently based on, and I believe that the coda client works.

I can't test it yet because I am on the other side of an IP-masq firewall,
and apparently coda doesn't work through this. Is there a way to get coda
to work through IP_Masq? Can I forward specific ports? If so, which ones.

Anyway, I then tried to set up the server, but got the following when
trying to create a volume with createvol: (I had only started codasrv by
the startserver script, and none of the auth or update stuff)

Here's the gdb backtrace:

(gdb) bt
#0  0x15bcefc in __syscall_rt_sigsuspend () at soinit.c:59
#1  0x15bbcb8 in __sigsuspend (set=0x15021b48)

#6  0x19d8bbc in Create_Process_Part2 () at lwp.c:1098

And the /vice/srv/SrvLog:
