- a metapackage which will automatically update you to the latest 2.6.31 release, the package is named 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:
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. The version in the repository is 0.30.216-pre2882.
