Description Thomas Witzenrath 2020-03-31 12:59:24 UTC
As of now stable drbd-utils do not work with the 5.4 series kernel. I simply copied the old ebuild and fixed the download url to get a working new ebuild.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install new 5.4 series kernel
2. start drbd

Actual Results:  
drbd fails to start

Expected Results:  
drbd works

the file sys-cluster/drbd-utils/files/drbd-utils-8.9.6-sysmacros.patch needs to be copied to sys-cluster/drbd-utils/files/drbd-utils-9.12.1-sysmacros.patch as well
Comment 3 Jonas Stein gentoo-dev 2020-03-31 21:39:18 UTC
Thank you for your contribution. I had a short look on the ebuild. 
Here a few ideas:

* Please test the ebuild with repoman full -d -x and pkgcheck
* We always try to use the latest EAPI, please bump to EAPI=7
  check, if you need eutils afterwards

* Please remove obsolete lines
* please fix the header. (see /usr/portage/skel.ebuild and
* A bot can look for additional mistakes, if you upload a PR via github
