hello everybody!

i tried to install a coda server on a RedHat 6.1 system with a 2.2.12 kernel.
if i want to create the root volume i get the following error message:

# createvol_rep coda:root E0000100 /var/vicepa
Servers are (wotan )
HexGroupId is 7F00001E
creating volume coda:root.0 on wotan
V_BindToServer: binding to host localhost
VolCreate failed with Unknown RPC2 return code 103
Failure to make volume on wotan!. Abort..

the server log contains this:

20:07:47 VGetPartition Couldn't find partition /var/vicepa
20:07:47 VCreateVolume: Cannot find partition /var/vicepa. Bailing out.

20:07:47 Unable to create the volume; aborted
20:07:47 create: volume creation failed for volume 1000001
20:07:47 status = (103) 

now my questions: is it a MUST, that /var/vicepa has to be partition? on my
system it is a normal directory in the /var partition. i tried to manage the
problem with a file, which was mounted via losetup into /var/vicepa, but i had
no success. i tried to create volume on /tmp, which is a real partition, but
there came out the analogue error message.

have anybody a idea, how can i solve this?

thanks in advance - Juergen
