did anyone try (and succeeded) in mount an EOS volumn using other linux distros (Debian, Ubuntu)? EOS clearly targets (CERN) CentOS and is only provided via YUM repos and RPMs.
So I wonder if someone already managed to install the EOS client on .deb file based distros and if there is a clear path, or if I should not even try ;).
The background is that at CERN EOS takes over tasks that were previously provided by AFS, which is being phased out. Due to compability with newer software (and some UI issues), I can’t use CC7 and are using Ubuntu. Being able to mount EOS volumes under Ubuntu would be very interesting for me.
