A question about NBD kernel module...

Hi,

I would like to mount a device using NBD protocol on CentOS 7 but it looks
like the module is not available by default in the kernel. Is there a way I
can install it (like from a rpm somewhere)? I found instructions to build
such a module but want to make sure that it is not already available in
some repo before I go ahead with building.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Raghu

You can do one (or both) of the following:

(1) File a request on <a href="http://bugs.centos.org" title="http://bugs.centos.org">http://bugs.centos.org</a> and ask that
CONFIG_BLK_DEV_NBD be enabled in the centosplus kernel.
(2) File a request on <a href="http://elrepo.org/bugs" title="http://elrepo.org/bugs">http://elrepo.org/bugs</a> and ask for a driver
(kmod package) for that.
