My installed drbd8 packages from backports.org on a Debian Etch amd64 are: #dpkg -l | grep drbd ii drbd8-2.6.18-6-amd64 8.0.13-1~bpo40+1+2.6.18.dfsg.1-22etch2 RAID 1 over tcp/ip for Linux kernel module ii drbd8-source 8.0.13-1~bpo40+1 RAID 1 over tcp/ip for Linux module source ii drbd8-utils 8.0.13-1~bpo40+1 RAID 1 over tcp/ip for Linux utilities > Can upgrade with out any worries, or will i have to recompile the > module, or anything else? If you use drbd8-source from backports.org then do after installation: module-assistant a-i drbd8-source and a Debian package (in my case: drbd8-2.6.18-6-amd64) will compiled, packaged and installed. Afterwards you have the new drbd.ko v8.0.13. HTH and with best regards. -- Matthias Böttcher
