I’m trying to compile drbd version 8.2.6 on Open Suse 11.1 (Kernel, but I get the following errors....

/usr/src/drbd-8.2.6/drbd/drbd_receiver.c: In function âdrbd_alloc_eeâ:

/usr/src/drbd-8.2.6/drbd/drbd_receiver.c:231: warning: passing argument 2 of
âq->merge_bvec_fnâ from incompatible pointer type

/usr/src/drbd-8.2.6/drbd/drbd_receiver.c:240: error: âstruct bioâ has no
member named âbi_hw_segmentsâ

make[5]: *** [/usr/src/drbd-8.2.6/drbd/drbd_receiver.o] Error 1

make[4]: *** [_module_/usr/src/drbd-8.2.6/drbd] Error 2

I see from an earlier post
http://lists.linbit.com/pipermail/drbd-user/2009-June/012139.html . You
suggest using 8.3.

Is this still the case and if so what are the reasons for this.
