I've discovered this error message by accident when I was restarting a
machine today. After it finishes booting and you get the login prompt
this error comes:

drbd: no version for "struct_module" found: kernel tainted

Well of course I did google and it seems that I have the wrong kernel
module for DRBD for my current kernel.

I'm using RHEL5 and I just installed DRBD via yum. I have the following
packages installed:

drbd.i386                                8.0.14-23.el5          
drbd-kmdl-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5.i686        8.0.14-23.el5          
drbd-kmdl-2.6.18-92.1.22.el5PAE.i686     8.0.14-23.el5          

and uname -r tells me: 2.6.18-92.1.22.el5PAE

So it should be the correct version. Can I just ignore this error then?
