Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Oops. A version update sneaked into the 9.1 kernel update, but the drbd
user space was not updated at the same time. We'll eventually fix that.

However, as drbd is not a supported feature on 9.1 (we only support it
fully on the enterprise product), you may as well recompile drbd on the
9.1 box.

Use 0.7.4.

make dep is no longer needed on the 2.6 kernel, I guess, so just ignore

Interesting, but harmless, the symlink simply already exists. I'd
recommend that you remove the drbd package (rpm -e drbd) before
installing your self-compiled version, otherwise you are bound to get
clashes between the packaged version and the one you are installing.
