Description Damien Neyret 2021-08-23 20:32:53 CEST
Description of problem:

dkms can't build the libafs module with kernel 5.13.12-desktop-2.mga8. When I try to do it by hand (make in /var/lib/dkms/libafs/1.9.0-1.mga8/build) I get the error:
/var/lib/dkms/libafs/1.9.0-1.mga8/build/src/libafs/MODLOAD-5.13.12-desktop-2.mga8-MP/afs_syscall.c:127:26: erreur: « TIF_IA32 » non déclaré (première utilisation dans cette fonction)
  127 |     if (test_thread_flag(TIF_IA32))
      |                          ^~~~~~~~
./include/linux/thread_info.h:131:45: note: dans la définition de la macro « test_thread_flag »
  131 |  test_ti_thread_flag(current_thread_info(), flag)

According to the openafs.org site a new openafs version named 1.8.8 (newer than 1.9.0 then...) should be compatible with kernels 5.11 and later.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Mageia 8, openafs version 1.9.0-1, kernel 5.13.12

How reproducible:

dkms build -m libafs -v 1.9.0-1.mga8 -k 5.13.12-desktop-2.mga8

Thanks for your help !

Ouch, yeah they don't list a newer development 1.9.x release, but they do have the 1.8.7 emergency bugfix release and 1.8.8 update for kernel 5.13.

There is a 1.9.1 on the download site, which is newer than 1.8.7, so it probably includes the emergency bugfix, but not the kernel 5.13 support (it supports 5.12).

Hi !

I tried to install the new openafs version 1.9.0-1.1.mga8. The dkms module compiles correctly with kernel version 5.13.12-desktop-2.mga8, and that module loads correctly in the system:

But when I try to access to a remote file system it fails (it does the same with other servers):
/home/neyret 2> ll /afs/grand.central.org
ls: impossible d'accéder à '/afs/grand.central.org': Connexion terminée par expiration du délai d'attente

Here are the messages in dmesg:
[ 3154.892362] afs: Lost contact with file server in cell grand.central.org (code -1) (all multi-homed ip addresses down for the server)
[ 3154.892372] RXAFS_GetCapabilities failed with code -1

Any idea about this problem ?

Thanks and best regards

The status message indicates that the service is disabled.
In the past when we have rebooted the system seemed to enable it automatically.
Maybe you could try
# systemctl enable openafs-client
# systemctl start openafs-client
and check status after that if there are no obvious errors.
