inserted was compiled against sources for another kernel. I'm using
RHEL5 Lustre RPMs on both RHEL5 and CentOS 5.2 systems. I'm wondering
if it is safe ignore these messages and attribute them to Lustre's
kernel sources being packaged in a non-Redhat fashion. As I said, DRBD
seems to be working just fine and I haven't noticed any performance
issues or any other scary kernel messages.
To get DRBD to find uts_releases, modpost, etc. and compile correctly, I
needed to prepare the source as follows:
Edit the EXTRAVERSION parameters in the kernel Makefile to point to the
correct directory in /lib/modules (EXTRAVERSION =
-92.1.17.el5_lustre.22.214.171.124custom -> EXTRAVERSION =
/usr/src/linux-2.6.18-92.1.17.el5_lustre.126.96.36.199/make oldconfig && make
prepare && make modules_prepare && make mrproper
/usr/src/ linux-2.6.18-92.1.17.el5_lustre.188.8.131.52-obj/make prepare &&
Again, aside from the tainted kernel message everything seems to be
working fine but I'd love to get rid of the message or know for sure
that it is nothing to worry about.
