[DRBD-user] Gentoo installation note....

Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Just a suggestion for the 'make install' on a gentoo system ... you can 
test if it's gentoo by checking if the file /etc/gentoo-release exists 
(it has the release level in it)

If so, the init scriot for drbd needs to be a bit different. The one I'm 
using is:
(NB. I have the drbdadm wait_connect all commented out because it always 
seems to timeout and everything is fine with it integrated via the 
heartbeat scripts anyway)

----------------------------cut here ----------------

depend() {
    use logger
    need net

start() {
    ebegin "Starting DRBD"
    if [ ! -e /dev/nb0 ] ; then
       /bin/mknod /dev/nb0 b 43 0
    if [ ! -e /dev/nb1 ] ; then
       /bin/mknod /dev/nb1 b 43 1
    /sbin/drbdadm up all
#    /sbin/drbdadm wait_connect all
    eend $ret

stop() {
    ebegin "Stopping DRBD"
    /sbin/drbdadm down all
    eend $?
