I tried updating to gcc-2.96-113 but still ran into the same issue.

But thanks for trying :) Interestingly, I was able to get drbd to both build and operate by commenting out line 28 of include/linux/mm_inline.h: //GPL_HEADER() So it probably is some weird compiler issue. Guess I will try other compiler versions when I have a chance. thanks, -bob
