I wrote earlier that it is hardly possible due to the way Konvalo.org
is built.

Still there is a workaround, may be worth to mention.

If you can install Coda on some computer "near" those Coda-unfriendly
machines, and provided that you can get permission to NFS-mount /coda,
then it will work, kind of.

I am using that trick to occasionally access Konvalo.org software
on Linux hosts with 2.4 kernel which does not support current Coda.

On the Coda client == NFS server I am using unfs3
with the following exports file:
/coda           XX.XX.0.0/,all_squash,removable,anonuid=65534,anongid=65534)
[The manpages can be found at

The NFS clients mount that share on /coda readonly.
You will need of course superuser cooperation to accomplish that.
It is slow, it is bad, but
the theora programs will run, at full speed.

My 2c,
