Hello, I upgrade my Kernel. Now when I start DRBD I have the message:


# /etc/init.d/drbd start

DRBD module version: 8.3.1

   userland version: 8.3.3


Why this difference? 


#modinfo drbd

filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.31-16-server/updates/dkms/drbd.ko

alias:          block-major-147-*

license:        GPL

version:        8.3.3

description:    drbd - Distributed Replicated Block Device v8.3.3


Why is it impossible to load drbd module?

#modprobe drbd

FATAL: Error inserting drbd
(/lib/modules/2.6.31-16-server/updates/dkms/drbd.ko): Unknown symbol in
module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)



# dpkg -l |grep -i drbd

Thx for you help, Eric
