Hoi Joost,

The only way venus can get killed here is because the child process that
was forked off to mount /coda failed to do so and killed it's parent.

There are many possible reasons for this, although we do try to catch
most cases earlier during the startup.

- Does the kernel module get loaded succesfully?
- Are there any errors in /usr/coda/etc/console?
- Try `venus -d 10' to get some more debugging information, the log
  really doesn't seem to indicate that anything went wrong at all.

- Have you tried connecting to the server we have set up here at CMU,
  there might actually be a server setup problem where it has a problem
  getting the information of the rootvolume from the server and cannot
  create a correct inode for /coda.
