I think the wiki has to be updated now to say "yum install kmod-drbd82"and not "yum install kmod-drbd82-`uname -r`" On the other hand it's true that having old kmod (with specific kver in the name) in the same repository tends to confuse people : that's why i reacted on the first question because there was no 'actual' kmod in the repo .. so i guess that all older kmods not using /sbin/weak-updates can be removed from the repo Are all the provided kmod rpms already using the weak-modules scripts ? -- - Fabian Arrotin <fabian.arrotin at arrfab.net> "Internet network currently down, TCP/IP packets delivered now by UPS/Fedex ..."
