there are new drbd packages "available" for CentOS. There now is
drbd82-8.2.7 with the responding kmod-drbd package, drbd83-8.3.1 (which
is the first 8.3 package available for CentOS) and 8.0.16 (which just is
an update). 8.0.16 is *only* available for CentOS 5.

All of these packages are not dependend on the kernel version anymore,
so there is no need for new packages when the kernel is updated. This
was true already for the CentOS 5 packages, but now also works for
CentOS 4. The CentOS 4 and CentOS 5 packages are generated from the same
spec files.

I'd like to push these packages into the CentOS-Extras repository as
soon as possible - to do so I need some feedback from users if these
packages work, as the spec files have changed to allow building packages
for both supported CentOS versions.

The packages are available from the testing repository at
<http://dev.centos.org/>. The versions you are looking for are:


(and of course there are drbd-kmod packages for all the different kernel
variants like kernel-xen, kernel-PAE, kernel-largesmp and so on).

WARNING: I am not sure if all of these packages work correctly, so
please test them on machines which aren't in production. All kmod-drbd*
packages with a release number <4 are broken for variant kernels, so
please do not use those.

It would be nice to get some feedback from you :)
