This page details the util-vserver related contents of the repository at http://repo.psand.net/
The repository has is regularly updated with new kernels and the new Debian packages for the vs2.3.x (the Linux-Vserver development branch). At time of writing (01/04/2010) the repository contains the following package for Debian Lenny (i386 and amd64 arches):
- a number of 2.6.31 series kernels, the latest is linux-image-22.214.171.124-vs126.96.36.199.28-beng
- two 2.6.33 series kernels, the latest being linux-image-188.8.131.52-vs184.108.40.206.30.3-beng (AMD64 only)
- a metapackage which will automatically update you to the latest 2.6.31 release linux-image-vserver-2.6.31-beng
Note from Ghislain: If anyone on the list has some debian package knowledge to help me separate one source into several binary packages please contact me gadnet =at= to help i would like to make de devl and legacy package separated from the main one.
There are two flavours of package for the development version of util-vserver 0.30.216-pre2864:
the util-vserver-basic-debian uses:
./configure $(CROSS) --prefix=/usr \ --sysconfdir=/etc \ --localstatedir=/var \ --mandir=/usr/share/man \ --infodir=/usr/share/info \ --with-initrddir=/etc/vservers/init.d \ --with-vrootdir=/var/lib/vservers \ --enable-dietlibc
the util-vserver-basic uses:
./configure $(CROSS) --prefix=/usr/local \ --with-initrddir=/usr/local/etc/vservers/init.d \ --enable-dietlibc \ --with-vrootdir=/vservers
Choose the '-basic' if you upgrade from source, choose the '-debian' if you upgrade from debian packages. As allways those packages comes with no warrant other than that we made them for us and provide tehm to the community in hope they help so they work for us on production server so they should be quite safe. Report issue with them on the vserver list if you find any so we can correct them.
I use them on several servers without issues on Debian Lenny.
hope that help the community, thanks to Ben Green for providing the mirror, helping out and making the kernel packages for us all.
regards, Ghislain. AQUEOS.

help to use them from: http://kernels.bristolwireless.net/ How to use the Debian Repository
First add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file: deb http://repo.psand.net/ lenny main
Then run this as root to add the gpg key to apt: wget -O - http://repo.psand.net/pubkey.txt | sudo apt-key add -
Proceed as normal, updateing your sources thus: apt-get update
To have a look for the kernel packages compiled by me one might use: apt-cache search linux | grep beng
