After some struggling with the default installation I finally got it working. The main problem were missing UAMs, the default debian package just supplies them for guest, cleartext and kerberos. I think it's because of some legal issues within Debian ... .

So I downloaded the netatalk-sources for version 2.02 and tried to compile it for myself. Unfortunately this didn't work out, as it wouldn't produce the neccessary UAMs. I searched the web and found this usenet post (it's in german). The main point is to have some libs installed:

libdb4.2-dev,
libpam0g-dev and
libssl-dev


are needed, I used ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --enable-debian --with-shadow --with-pam to set everything up. Then you just 'cd' into the directory 'etc/uams' within the sources and type 'make' (you don't need the rest of netatalk as you already got it via 'apt-get'). The resulting UAMs can be found in the 'etc/uams/.lib'-directory - I didn't try a 'make install' as I'm not sure if I set up those paths/prefixes correctly, so I copied them over by hand.

They need to be installed in '/usr/lib/netatalk/'. When you put them there you need to set up a symlink for 'uams_dhx.so' (like the one for 'uams_clrtxt.so' already there), I chose 'uams_dhx_pam.so'.

This is working quite well here, I get about 4MB/sec. from my PowerBook to my LinkStation (both on the same switch) using a MPEG2 transport stream of ca. 3GB. It gives me a cpu load of ca. 70% to 80% on the LinkStation.

Thanks for the information. I'll look into including those in the next development tools release.

This only applies to the debian conversion and it seems to be set up like this for some reason (although I don't understand it). If I knew debian better, I could create a .deb which can be installed easily on those boxes - but for now this seems to be a bit too advanced.

If anyone is interested, I can create an archive with those UAMs (they're about 500k). For Openlink and custom installs this shouldn't matter, as the default target for Netatalk does already create them (as far as the appropriate headers are available).
