First ... sidux is no longer Wink Long live aptosid !

Second ... sudo ? sure your using aptosid and not ubuntu Wink

maybe try
      Code:
apt-get install openafs-modules-dkms


I use NFS and I havent tried installing this, maybe someone else who has used this can chime in, or visit irc, maybe someone there has used it before

...the curse of out-of-tree modules which don't want to get merged mainline. The version in experimental might compile against kernel 2.6.3[67], otherwise I'd suggest filing a low severity (because Debian will release with kernel 2.6.32, so while incompatibility with kernel 2.6.37 would constitute a bug, it doesn't affect squeeze) against openafs-modules-source. Most likely the module-assistant based variant is affected by the same compatibility issue with newer kernels as the dkms variant, as both (should) ship the same unadapted source code.

Personally I'd suggest to avoid relying on out-of-tree modules, as long term support is mostly unknown and upgrades to newer kernel versions are often fragile. If you observe the process for staging drivers, it becomes obvious how much many out-of-tree drivers - without thorough peer2peer scrutiny - need to be fixed, before they may enter the proper kernel, many bugs and lazy approaches get uncovered that way.

THX slh!
If i understand U right, i need to install the kernel which is suported by openafs-modules-dkms. So i have two kernel on my system. One is the current Kernel, which is safe, and another one, which i must start, if i want to use afs.
Is this right?

No, you should install a recent enough - non-broken with contemporary kernels - openafs-modules-source package, which you might find in experimental and use module-assistant (and dmakms, if you like) as usual.

Personally I'd reconsider making myself dependent on out-of-tree kernel modules though, because they will break on upgrades sooner or much sooner.
