We mainly deal with IBM iSeries which are ppc machines. Recently it seems to be "fashionable" to run Linux in hosted virtual Partitions on these boxes. > > I can not help you with that build issue from the > > top of my head, but I can tell you that the module you would get > > if the build would run through would be not be functional... > > > > We just recently fixed an endianess issue in the code, you have > > to wait for 8.0.14 or 8.2.7, which will be released RSN. This confuses me a little because I used 8.2.7rc2. Is this working? If not, which version would you suggest? Actually I am using 8.0.7 which works fine for me but as we are developing HA-scenarios for customers I would prefer a more recent version to prevent problems in the future. > > > > PS: Does a simple "make" work in the drbd source dir? > > if not, you probably need to install > "kernel-source" and "kernel-syms" packages. Indeed, kernel-syms was missing. Now everything compiles fine but I don't dare to update before I confirmed proper function of the new version according to Philipp's comment.
