That said, this is how easy it is to use AFS on OpenBSD.
- set "afs=YES" in rc.conf
- mkdir /afs
fill in a value into /etc/afs/ThisCell.
it turns out that this isn't a specific IP or even a hostname, it's just a site name. so i entered file13.ucs.ualberta.ca when all i needed was ualberta.ca. you'll see that these lines start with a ">" ... use those
$ ls /afs andrew.cmu.edu cs.cmu.edu openafs.org ua athena.mit.edu glue.umd.edu rpi.edu ualberta.ca cern.ch ipp-garching.mpg.de sks umich.edu citi.umich.edu nersc.gov stacken.kth.se wam.umd.eduI've used this method to install packages and snag other software mirrored on AFS-available volumes. Now you can play with it, too.
If you're not using OpenBSD-current, you have to recompile your kernel with the option "AFS" enabled.
UPDATE Note that this is only anonymous AFS, which lets you snag files from public AFS servers.
