DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2003-11
It should be relatively easy to bring up the file servers on
FreeBSD-stable. It's when you want the AFS-client support
that things get much messier.

The OpenAFS-client support at least compiled on FreeBSD-4
for awhile, but I believe there were still some problems
with it. Recently Garrett Wollman has been doing a lot
of work to get the client-side working on FreeBSD-current,
including a lot of bug fixes. That's probably breaking
the client support on FreeBSD-stable. I was starting to
test those changes on FreeBSD-stable, but then my main
development machine went haywire with hardware problems.
So you maybe able to get a client snapshot that will
compile on DragonflyBSD, but it probably will not be
That's just the client support. I know people have setup
OpenAFS servers on FreeBSD-stable, but I don't know if
any have tried to do it recently.
I think most of the people actively interested in OpenAFS
on FreeBSD are focused on FreeBSD-current support, so you
might want to keep that in mind if you're hoping to have
it on DragonflyBSD.
