As just a User, I would like to see a kernel module and user level tools split, on an rpm's produced level. The reason: so I can upgrade kernels, install the newly built drbd module rpm and not have to --force the install because it also includes the drbd tools. Note: this is using the same drbd release. Granted the tools rpm should probably depend on the version of the module installed so the api is known to match. of course I could be completely insane about this...I still don't like rpm/deb based systems, give me slackware anytime. -- Todd Denniston Crane Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC Crane) Harnessing the Power of Technology for the Warfighter
