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

Thanks Luciano,

When I try a "make" in /usr/src/drbd-0.7.17 (where I unpacked the 
archive) I get:

Calling toplevel makefile of kernel source tree, which I believe is in

    SORRY, kernel makefile not found. You need to tell me a correct KDIR!

However in /lib/modules I only have:

drwxr-xr-x   3 root root 4096 Dec 27 23:51 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4

I don't have a directory matching my currently running kernel, which is 
I have installed and updated the kernel-devel package for fedora core 4 
("yum update kernel-devel") and downloaded 
kernel-2.6.16-1.2069_FC4.src.rpm and installed it ("rpm -Uvh 
kernel-2.6.16-1.2069_FC4.src.rpm") however neither of those packages 
provides it. Do you know which FC4 package provides the needed files here?

Thanks for your help,
