Oh, THAT explains it, I didn't consider anybody was using an old
version of venus (only about 8 months ;)

The 4.6.5 version calls getservbyname with a second argument of 0,
instead of "udp". This was fixed in the early 4.7's when we merged
in the contributed patches for linux-PPC. said:

| GetRootVolume: can't get root volume name!

And now I understand this one as well, the following is from the
announcement for the coda-5.0.0 release:

Compatibility with previous versions:
 - network protocol: can coexists with 4.6.7 and later
 - disk format client: can only coexists with 5.0pre1
 - disk format for server: backward compatible

So you will need to upgrade your server otherwise a 5.2.0 client cannot
talk to it.
