Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.


Proxmox has just released PVE5 beta. On this version they have removed
DRBD9 kernel module from their kernel and have replaced it with DRBD 8.4.7
They said that DRBD9 kernel module is supported via DKMS, however I tried
to install it yesterday by using Linbit's PVE4 repo but it failed to build.
Any chance to upgrade PVE repo to 5 and DRBD9 kernel module so we can test?

Description: RAID 1 over TCP/IP for Linux module source
 DRBD is a block device which is designed to build high availability
 clusters by providing a virtual shared device which keeps disks in
 nodes synchronised using TCP/IP. This simulates RAID 1 but avoiding
 the use of uncommon hardware (shared SCSI buses or Fibre Channel).
 It is currently limited to fail-over HA clusters.
 This package contains the source code for the DRBD kernel module.
