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

Ok, as a followup, I'm not sure exactly if this is pertinent only for 
me, or users of drbd > 7.3, but when you compile the drbd code, you need 
to do it from /usr/src/drbd-0.7.10/  directory, not the 
/usr/src/drbd-0.7.10/drbd/ directory (as specified in the install 
instructions). Same with the make install.

Anyhow, it's working now, I assume. Possibly something to update in the 
install files?
