I confirm that the rpm builds correctly on my CentOS x86 with kernel
2.6.18-238.12.1.el5 and now I don't get the panic when running mkfs on
top of drbd0. Thanks.
Next step I will try the multiple replicated volume feature in single

Any ETA about final date ? Would you suggest 8.4 for a pacemaker
cluster based on CentOS 5.6 (or perhaps 6.1) that could go to
production on September? Or generally you sugegst to adopt X.Y.Z
version when Z is greater than a certain number > 0?

BTW: if you take the time to see my previous post on rc1 at
and give a feedback about my comments on doc section about rpm build
stage it would be great.
