Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 76066
RFE: afs-based installs
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:47:38 EDT
Now that David Howells's lightweight AFS client is both in the Red Hat kernels
and the official development tree, something I've thought about for a while now
seems a real possiblity: anaconda should be able to do Red Hat installs out of
AFS in addition to NFS, etc.
a) kafs isn't really at a point where it's useful yet
b) even if it were, it's not actually supported, even though we shipped the patch.
Both of the above have to change before we can even consider installer support
and even then, it's not going to be overly likely due to space constraints.
Sure, just wanted to get the idea to you. You can't imagine how awesome this
option would be for us at BU.
