[Repost - last time this didn't seem to work]

I've been running gluster for a couple of years, so I'm quite used to 3.0.x and earlier. I'm looking to upgrade to 3.1.1 for more stability (I'm getting frequent 'file has vanished' errors when rsyncing from 3.0.6) on a bog-standard 2-node dist/rep config. So far it's not going well. I'm running on Ubuntu Lucid x64 using the current 3.1.1 package. It seems that a lot of the basics are not covered in the docs - for example, it doesn't seem to work with tcp out of the box - the vital transport-type option doesn't even appear in the 3.1 docs as far as I can find!

So now I've got as far as tweaking that in the glusterd.vol file (also not documented) and glusterd starts with no errors, but netstat tells me nothing is running on that port and it's not responding on port 6996 if I try to telnet to it.

Is there some documentation or howto for getting gluster 3.1.1 working over tcp? I don't think my situation is exactly rare!
