I think you mean: # apt-get install drbd drbd-modules-<kernel-version> > Please test out and send me feedback. Tried it on a fresh sarge base-installation: 1) aptitude drbd-modules-2.4.26-1-386 a) the description is misleading, should be something like (changed from pcmcia-modules): DRBD Modules for Linux (kernel 2.4.26). This package contains the set of loadable kernel modules for the DRBD RAID 1 over TCP/IP. They have been compiled to be compatible with the kernel in the kernel-image-2.4.26 package version 2.2.26-1. If you have compiled your own kernel, you will most likely need to also recompile the DRBD modules. The drbd-source package has been provided to help Debian users recompile the DRBD modules to work with their kernels' configurations. (It also is possible to rebuild these modules using the Debian source files for the drbd package.) The utilities in the drbd package are required to use these modules. b) drbd is not installed automatically. Is this intended? If I look at pcmcia-modules, there is a dependency on pcmcia-cs. c) The corresponding kernel-image is not installed automatically. Make a dependency on the kernel-image-<version>, see pcmcia-modules. 2) apt-get install drbd 3 ) aptitude kernel-image 4) reboot Ok, drbd is complaining a little bit, because I didn't edit /etc/drbd.conf, and the automatically installed, but unconfigured heartbeat is chatting like an old woman. 5) modprobe drbd ok. > Lastly, I'm curious as to the state of DRBD in other distributions. > Are there binary module packages available to install against stock > RedHat and SUSE kernels for instance? Don't know. I could not try out drbd-0.7 of Suse 9.1, because Yast needs to install on one of the first 8 partitions of a harddisk, and these are used on my test machine by other distries. Also it seems to have an old partitioner, because it does not recognize the full 160 GB size. Better try this out on an empty machine/harddisk, when I have time. Helmut Wollmersdorfer
