yes, there should already be an update...

anyways. there is user space and kernel space.
they have to match.
in suse, that is drbd.rpm and km_drbd.rpm
so make sure that the version of that both packages match.

and that you unload/reload the drbd module, just in case.

might be that it is minor-count now, no more underscore...
