[Gluster-users] Configuration on the command line and (serious) locking problems

It seems, that configuring glusterfs with configuration files is not
supported anymore with version 3.2.x. Is that true?
What kind of "RPC programm" does glusterfs use and why is it necessary
to call an external application? Do you want to force users to use the
command line? Will direct configuration with files be supported in
future versions? I would really appreciate that. :-)

I tried to create a replication cluster manually for two nodes, but
failed to setup locking successfully. Is locking still an issue with
glusterfs? Have you ever done tests for locking? I wrote a very simple
bash script to test locking with flock. As soon as I start this script
on one node in the glusterfs mount, reading the file this script writes
on the other node in the glusterfs mount blocks both nodes. I need to
restart one of them. I consider this a serious problem.
