I tried the new SuSE 8.0. Coda ran quite good (all daemons were running,
replicated volumes worked), but _extremely_ slow (about 1 minute for 1 MB).
After fixing some problems, the situation didn't get better. There were
also (as with my RedHat and Debian Problems) no helpful answers.

am also interessted for what you dropped coda in favor of ...

I seem to remember you mentioning trying a SuSE version... which one did
you try? I got Coda up and running on a patched 7.1 version (patched as
in all the updates included), and it worked more or less directly
out-of-the-box. I chose to drop Coda because the constraints on file
server size (COME ON GUYS - nobody sets up a file server with 50Gb of
disk!), but that is another story...
