hi mike,

i thought so, but thanks anyway. I'll give'em a try, in case I have some
free time to compile it and make a deb package.

in the meantime I will use drbd for disk sync together with remus, won't be
100% secure (ram vs. disk state) but should be ok!

thanks walter.

ps: will post a thread in case I have a amd64 version.

blktap/blktap2 is not in mainline kernel, and I'm told that it will never be
accepted there. It does, however, work on Linux 3.0 (686-pae, not amd64).
Take a look at http://downloads.xen.org/XCP/debian and download and install
the blktap-dkms package. I may be wrong, but I think the source repository
for that package is on http://xenbits.xen.org. I've got to run, sorry I
can't be more help right now.
