I installed latest Debian sarge Linux kernel-image 2.4.27 and the drbd-modules-source package from Cyril, compiled and installed drbd-0.7.21 with: cd /usr/src; tar -xzf drbd-0.7.tar.gz cd kernel-headers-2.4.27-3-686-smp make-kpkg modules_image cd .. dpkg -i \ drbd0.7-module-2.4.27-3-686-smp_0.7.21-3+2.4.27-10sarge3_i386.deb All running fine. Many thanks to the DRBD developers and to you Cyril.
