I don't have bare metal, so I'm concerned about performance: Mac OS X running a Linux kernel running an OpenVZ virtual machine (am I reading this right: http://openvz.org/Main_Page?). One virtual machine stresses this MacBook (8 Cores with 8GB RAM), and two drops it to its knees because of disk bottlenecks. > build@...64:~ > lftp -e 'open ftp.ru.openwall.com; cd /pub/Owl/current; mirror -Lev sources; get native.tar.gz; exit' && tar -xzf native.tar.gz > Ah, ok. I'll try it when I get to that point. Would you happen to know how to start the dhcp client? I don't have a network connection at the moment. So far, I've tried dhclient and received a "command not found". `man -k dhcp` returned "nothing appropriate". I have not dug around on the web yet. I often stumble around like this with administrivia, so its no big deal. > > I'm trying to determine the base OS to use in setting up a > > virtual machine.
