This page contains specific instructions on how to get the vserver kernel patch and tools up and running on a Linux system. Links are provided to further information where necessary.
Steps to vserver lovin':
- Download a vanilla kernel from kernel.org [2.4.24]. ( or [2.4.25] . )
- Download the latest vserver kernel patch [1.26]. ( or [1.26 patch for 2.4.25]. )
- Patch the downloaded kernel.
- Configure, compile, and install the kernel.
- Kernel configuration (vserver 1.22 - if no quota support wanted, normal configuration)
- Block devices/Virtual Root device support - needed for pr. vserver quota
- File systems/Persistient ContextID? for files - needed for quota, and you need the ADDON quota patch
- File systems/Quota support
- Quota suboption/VFS vo quota format support
- Install the vserver tools, and if you want quota support, the quota tools
- Create a new vserver. (This needs some explanation as this is supposed to be a step-by-step guide)
- Check the server configuration (/etc/vservers/<name>.conf).
- Try starting the vserver (vserver <name> start).
- Assuming all went well, enter the vserver (vserver <name> enter).
