direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

take a look at the thread here:
</self horn tooting>

what I ended up doing was installing the source RPM (srpm) for the first 
version that failed, and the srpm for the last version before that, and 
compareing the diff between the trees.  I later found that it might have been 
quicker to look at {%_topdir}/SPECS/kernel-2.6.spec [Note you need to rename 
the first one installed before installing the second or they overwrite each 
other] and diff just the spec file and look at [for FC4] the lines that start 
with "Patch#:" if they are based on the same Linus kernel then this will tell 
you what changed between them and you can look at the individual patches for 
ideas as to it being the problem.  once you have a good idea which one is the 
problem you can just comment out the appropriate line in the spec [for the 
broken kernel] and build the kernel from that to test with.  If the problem 
goes away with the change then you know what Lars and Philipp should look at 
to decide if it is a drbd or Fedora problem.

good hunting.
