Using 10.04.3 LTS, I can "apt-get install drbd8-utils", and it neatly compiles a kernel module and installs the userland tools, which is great, and even seems to work :-), > > but they're version 8.3.7. > > Should I go out of my way to upgrade to 8.3.9 or higher, or is using this version on Ubuntu "supported"? :-) > > Will my servers melt and delete my bytes if I use 8.3.7?

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. Lionel Sausin.
