If you are running a system in production you should probably consider building your own kernel based on the vanilla kernel source as described here: [[Installation_on_Linux_2.6]]
  
There are howtos on Ubuntu's site that describe how to download pre-built, Ubuntu-specific kernels.
+
The binary kernel images provided here are neither official ubuntu nor official Linux-VServer kernel images.  
  
  http://help.ubuntu.com/community/VServer
+
If you have any problems with those kernels please send a mail to the VServer [http://list.linux-vserver.org/ mailinglist] and please '''do not file any bugs on the ubuntu bugtracker'''.
  
More detailed instructions on the u32 kernel can be found on http://wiki.u32.net/Ubuntu-VServer

If you are interested in a different kernel config or have prepared a patch for newer kernels, do not hesitate to contact the VServer [http://list.linux-vserver.org/ mailinglist].

You can add the following key to your apt keyring:
  
When you recieve a 'Segmentation fault' error running vserver-utils try useing latest [http://www.fefe.de/dietlibc/ dietlibc]

<nowiki>sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com BB9BFB5B</nowiki>
+
wget http://www.fefe.de/dietlibc/<insert version here>
+
tar jxvf dietlibc*
+
cd dietlibc
+
more README
+
  
Or alternatively, use debian packages. The binaries are staticly linked as far as I known so it doesn't matter.

Feity and up gcc version won't let you compile correctly dietlibc yet.

Disclaimer

If you are running a system in production you should probably consider building your own kernel based on the vanilla kernel source as described here: Installation_on_Linux_2.6

The binary kernel images provided here are neither official ubuntu nor official Linux-VServer kernel images.

If you have any problems with those kernels please send a mail to the VServer mailinglist and please do not file any bugs on the ubuntu bugtracker.

If you are interested in a different kernel config or have prepared a patch for newer kernels, do not hesitate to contact the VServer mailinglist.
