Date: Sat, 22 Oct 2011 08:21:56 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: owl-dev@...ts.openwall.com Subject: support for newer Fedora Hi, Fedora 13 runs in OpenVZ container on Owl 3.0 and -current just fine. (In fact, I run Xilinx ISE in this way - a 20 GB software install.) Fedora 14 is the latest of Fedoras that I am able to run on Owl-current, after faking the kernel version number with "sysctl -w kernel.virt_osrelease=2.6.32". (The kernel actually has the necessary backports.) Maybe vzctl should do this for Fedora 14+ on its own? Maybe newer vzctl already does it? Fedora 15 gets stuck in what appears in ps as "init -z". strace shows that it's doing pause(). I guess systemd is incompatible with our kernel and/or vzctl. Is this something we can fix without major updates? I'd like a fix suitable for 3.0-stable if possible. (Indeed, we'll eventually update to RHEL 6 kernels and latest vzctl in Owl-current, which will obviously make Fedora 15+ work.) I haven't looked into these issues yet; I am hoping that someone else in here already did (not necessarily in Owl context). (I suppose I could as well ask on OpenVZ lists, but our use of older vzctl base version is our problem, not theirs.) Thanks, Alexander
