Hey all. I have some nitpicky feedback about the backported kernel module installation process -- as I mentioned, it worked a treat for me, but there are some ways that the documentation could be improved: * The ib_iser module depends on the iSCSI interface for some crazy reason -- if you install the backported modules into a vendor kernel that has this module, you'll get warnings about symbol mismatches. It might be worth dropping a note to that effect into the documentation (I can't imagine that this is worth fixing, since I doubt there's even a single person who wants to use both of these modules simultaneously). * The instructions for Debian are obselete; they refer to the old linux-iscsi package, which has been replaced by open-iscsi, which has stopped providing the backported-module functionality that I believe is referred to in the instructions. What I did on Debian to get the backported kernel modules was: * Install the linux-headers package for the kernel image I run * Set KERNEL_TARGET in kernel/Makefile manually, since for some reason it didn't work automatically (maybe because the Debian kernels have additional packaging information in EXTRAVERSION). * Compile open-iscsi-2.0-868-rc1 from the tarball * Use dpkg-divert to move aside the existing iscsi modules in /lib/modules * Copy the hand-compiled modules into /lib/modules * Use dpkg-divert to move aside /lib/modules/.../ib_iser.ko to avoid warnings * Thank you once again for providing the backported kernel modules; they're a lifesaver :-). Cheers.
