Well, I have to admit that Gentoo is not the best for this and for
other reason (there aren't also software uitilities like drbdlinks in
the portage),but it's not my personal choice...however it was as i
supposed for some hardware (both computers are not so young!one is a
pentium3 and the other a pentium4)..
I didn't want to believe that it was a hardware fault because the
other device drbd works perfectly and it's on the same disk,where
before there was root partition of the OS and it never gave me
problems. And of course I HOPED it wasn't a hardware problem :)
I thank you for now,I'll let you know if i solved the problem changing
the hardware..
