I have not tried it, since the openafs mailing list had some
talk of the latest (CVS) snapshots of OpenAFS not working on
FreeBSD 6.1. I thought that meant OpenAFS was broken due to
changes in FreeBSD, which has certainly happened in the past.
But in re-reading those messages, it looks like the problem
might have been specific to OpenAFS on FreeBSD/amd64.
Since I am not running on AMD64 (yet...), I should take another
look at the recent snapshots of OpenAFS on FreeBSD. I have
been focused on the upcoming 1.4.1 release of OpenAFS, since
that will include support for MacOS 10.4 (Tiger). The web
pages for those release-candidates only have binary packages
for MacOS 10 and Windows, and I must admit I didn't try them
on FreeBSD. Thanks for prodding me along to take another
look at this.
(now I just have to find the time to do it...)
