Hello peple, 

i've a little problem with venus. My System contains the follow:

Debian testing/unstable
ii  coda-backup                  6.0.7
ii  coda-client                  6.0.7
ii  coda-server                  6.0.7
ii  coda-update                  6.0.7

and some other packets which i need to run my System ;) 

MH-02:/usr/share/doc/coda-client# uname -a
Linux MH-02 2.4.28 #1 So Dez 19 20:57:29 CET 2004 i686 GNU/Linux

After some problems i've compiled the Kernel Version 2.4.28 (with coda-Modul, 
if this is recomerd, but i think at coda-version 6.X we do not need a modul). 
Now i setup the coda with "vice-setup" and add some correct parameters. It 
will success all input. Now i create a user called admin (after the user 
"coda" is created in Setup). 

Now i think it is time to start venus with "venus" and i get following error:

MH-02:/usr/share/doc/coda-client# venus

21:41:37 WorkerInit: Kernel version is 2

i can not understand what venus want to have, because i think this 
kernel-version allways run with coda-system. 

On a seccond server i get another error:

MH-01:~# venus

Date: Sun 12/19/2004

21:27:01 You may use gdb to attach to 2258

This error is not amazing, because i've tried to compile coda the first time 
and there some modules not deinstalled i think.... :=) so that it will be a 

But can somebody help me for the first error please? Ive no idea yet and i'am 
searching the last day ;-/

Best regards
