@valerionew: This package only contains the userspace part of OpenAFS. The kernel modules are in openafs-modules (which depends on linux-headers) or openafs-modules-modules-dkms.

Should this also need linux-headers?

Need to add libxcrypt to depends.

Hi Bevan, indeed, it is most likely this (unfortunate) outage. Thanks for pointing it out!

Hi Jan. Could that be caused by this outage?

Hi all,

after updating the system, I have troubles using AFS (details follow) and I wonder if anyone experiences the same or potentially would know how to fix it.

The SW versions which I use: kernel 5.14.14-arch1-1, openafs 1.8.8-1 and openafs-modules 1.8.8-2. The first problem occurs when running aklog:

Authenticating to cell (server
Trying to authenticate to user's realm CERN.CH.
Getting tickets: afs/
Using Kerberos V5 ticket natively
About to resolve name jkaspar to id in cell
# here it hangs for a minute
Error -1
Setting tokens. jkaspar @

Then, trying to ls a directory on AFS, I get a time out:

> ll /afs/
ls: cannot open directory '/afs/': Connection timed out

Thanks in advance,

Yes, it works for me now with: linux 5.14.8.arch1-1 openafs-modules-dkms 1.8.8-2

Thank you very much.

The potential RIP with kernel 5.14 should be fixed by openafs-modules-1.8.8-2 and openafs-modules-dkms-1.8.8-2. See for the ongoing review of the fix.

drslmr: Thanks for noticing us here. The same error has been reported on the openafs mailing list:

So far, it could not be reproduced but with your report it becomes pretty clear that it is an issue with 5.14.8 / 5.14.9 specifically. I will forward your report to the mailing list as well so this issue can be sorted out quickly.

I reported a kernel bug, that may have to do with afs:
