    Dav, I had the same problem trying to compile the kernel module on Fedora Core 5. After some searching I found that the set_wmb macro they use in their code was removed from the kernel source. see for instance.

    I got the module to compile on FC5 by this procedure:

    1. go to /var/lib/dkms/snapapi26/0.7.4/source/ and add this line after the last #define line of snapapi.h and snumbd.h

    #define set_wmb(var, value) { var = value; wmb(); }

    2. compile using dkms:

    dkms build -m snapapi26 -v 0.7.4

    3. install using dkms:

    dkms install -m snapapi26 -v 0.7.4

    Hope this helps! Btw acronis, do I get a freebie for answering this question!? :shifty:

    Warning! This seems to work but I/O was extremely SLOW when trying to build a USB rescue device. something like 16k/sec. Can you take a look at this and see what needs to be updated on this device driver to get it working in newer kernelso_O

    Hello mshuttle,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Remote Server Backup Software.

    We are sorry for the delayed response.

    Please be aware that as I stated in this previous thread (post #4) you are using an old build of Acronis True Image 9.1 Enterprise Server. To solve the issue please follow the instructions provided in the above post.

    Thank you.
