Then maybe it would be a good idea to test on a supported platform first.

I'm personally looking forward to 12.04 LTS being released, plus a few
months for the inevitable bugs to shake out, but it's definitely in the
"experimental" category right now.

Note also: all the official builds of glusterfs are 64-bit. From what I've
read, 3.2.x *ought* to work on 32-bit:
http://gluster.org/pipermail/gluster-users/2010-August/005175.html
but if your VM platform supports 64-bit images, I'd suggest using that
instead.

FWIW, I had no problem at all getting glusterfs 3.2.x to work on fresh
installs of ubuntu 11.10 64-bit server, connected via 10G ethernet.  I'm
testing on this because (a) the official packages are built for 11.10, and
(b) it's probably the nearest I can get to 12.04 whilst still being a widely
used and tested platform.

I have entries in /etc/hosts for all the nodes, pointing to their IPs on the
10G network (there are separate management interfaces too)

If you can get it to work like this first, it may then be easier to find out
what's happening with your source builds.  Some -dev package missing
perhaps?  OTOH, if it doesn't work from the official 64-bit packages, then
maybe there's some problem with your environment (e.g. DNS, iptables,
apparmor/selinux)

Regards,

Brian.
