Hi, I needed to build the drbd 8.4.6 kernel module for my Debian stable ("jessie") boxes. As a result of which, I found 2 bugs: 1) the built drbd module package ends up depending on drbd8-utils, which is now incorrect - that should be drbd-utils. This requires a trivial patch: diff --git a/debian/control.modules.in b/debian/control.modules.in index b42484f..3b7e135 100644 --- a/debian/control.modules.in +++ b/debian/control.modules.in @@ -8,7 +8,7 @@ Standards-Version: 3.6.1 Package: drbd8-module-_KVERS_ Architecture: any -Depends: drbd8-utils +Depends: drbd-utils Conflicts: drbd-module-_KVERS_ Provides: drbd-module-_KVERS_ Replaces: drbd-module-_KVERS_ 2) the drbd8-module-source_8.4.6-1_all.deb isn't actually buildable - module-assistant auto-install drbd8 fails to build drbd_buildtag.c The relevant bit of Kbuild for this file is ll 123 et seq, mangling a bit to try and reduce line-wrap-damage: if test -e $(src)/../.git && GITHEAD=$$(cd $(src) && git rev-parse HEAD); then GITDIFF=$$(cd $(src)/.. && git diff --name-only HEAD | tr -s '\t\n' ' ' | sed -e 's/^/ /;s/ *$$//'); echo -e "\treturn \"GIT-hash: $$GITHEAD$$GITDIFF\""; elif test -e $(src)/.drbd_git_revision ; then echo -e "\treturn \"$$(cat $(src)/.drbd_git_revision)\""; elif test -e $@ ; then grep return $@ ; else echo >&2 "Your DRBD source tree is broken. Unpack again."; exit 1; The source package doesn't contain .git (obviously, it's not a git checkout), but nor does it contain .drbd_git_revision nor drbd_buildtag.c . I worked around this by pinching .drbd_git_revision from the 8.4.6 tarball and copying that into place, but this is clearly not really the right answer - so should the build process for the module-source package create a .drbd_git_revision file, perhaps?
