Creating AFS Directories

If you are installing from packages (such as Debian .deb or Fedora/SuSe .rpm files), you should now install all of the available OpenAFS packages for your system type. Typically, these will include packages for client and server functionality, and a seperate package containing a suitable kernel module for your running kernel. Consult the package lists on the OpenAFS website to determine the packages appropriate for your system.

If you are installing from a tarfile, or from a locally compiled source tree you should create the /usr/afs and /usr/vice/etc directories on the local disk, to house server and client files respectively. Subsequent instructions copy files from the distribution tarfile into them.

   # mkdir /usr/afs
   # mkdir /usr/vice
   # mkdir /usr/vice/etc
