Welcome, Linux-VServer provides virtualization for GNU/Linux systems. This is accomplished by kernel level isolation. It allows to run multiple virtual units at once. Those units are sufficiently isolated to guarantee the required security, but utilize available resources efficiently, as they run on the same kernel.
This site contains information relating to the use and development of virtual servers based on Linux-VServer. This particular virtual server model is implemented through a combination of "security contexts", segmented routing, chroot, extended quotas and some other standard tools.
Note: in response to public demand, we added a Hacker Page and we would kindly ask all that wannabe hackers use that page for the very challenging task of wiki hacking (TIA:). Why do we have an 'open' wiki with no auth then? Because the majority of people are adult enough not to deface common property (especially if it belongs to a cool free software project you might find useful yourself some day).
It is intended that in the future this site will become the central repository of information and coordination. To that end, all current developers and interested individuals are invited to contribute to these pages.
Note: If this isn't what you are looking for, maybe [Linux Virtual Server] is.

grsec + vserver patch: [18.104.22.168-vs2.0.2-rc27-grsec2.1.9]
Experimental sources are likely to apply clean to the newest vanilla kernel. For kernel versions see changelog. If you are asking yourself at the moment, if you should try experimental: Be advised not to do it. You probably wont even notice the advantage over stable or devel.
