We've been using DRBD on Ubuntu Lucid and the packaged version worked 
rather fine except for this bug :

However we've upgraded to 8.3.11 for the new features it provides, and I 
expect we'll upgrade to newer 8.3 releases later on.
We have a PPD you can use : https://launchpad.net/~numerigraphe/+archive/ppa
Our drbd packages are recompiled from the ubuntu source packages, with 
only the original tarball upgraded - nothing fancy. We do it that way 
mostly because Ubuntu packaged drbd for use with DKMS.
If you build your own package, just make sure you build it on the same 
kernel version and architecture, or tune the configure magic that adapts 
the Makefile.
