Hi List,

I am trying to compile the original 2.6.18 fedora kernel with drdb 
0.7.22 from http://oss.linbit.com/drbd/0.7/drbd-0.7.22.tar.gz

I have created a patch like that:
make KDIR=/usr/src/linux-2.6.18-1.2239.fc5/ KVER=2.6.18-1.2239.fc5 
kernel-patch

If I am not specifying the kernel version I get an error like that:

make KDIR=/usr/src/linux-2.6.18-1.2239.fc5/  kernel-patch
Makefile:164: *** "could not determine uts_release".  Stop.

even if i do a simple clean:
make clean
Makefile:164: *** "could not determine uts_release".  Stop.



and patched it into the kernel as described in the docs.

When it compiles the Kernel it stops:

In the changelog I read of drbd 0.7.22:
* Gracefull removal of devfs and other updates.

I thought it is removed and would compile now with newer kernels.
I have found a thread where they wrote that this will be solved in 
0.7.22, but maybe not.

Thanks a lot

Achim
