[DRBD-user] Unable to compile drbd-8.2.4 on SUSE 10

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



Ensure you read the INSTALL in the tar file.  There are things you need 
to do first.

Second, and I have just been battling this:

Ensure your running kernel is the same as your kernel source code.  SUSE 
10.3 will upgrade your source directory and symbolic links, but not the 
running kernel, even after reboot.  This will also cause this problem.

Check 'uname -r' is similar to the symbolic link '/usr/src/linux'...
