We have good experience of running OpenVZ (http://openvz.org) with Owl as the H/W node OS and Owl inside VPS environment. Quick steps to create a test bed are the following: 1. download ovzkernel, vzctl, vzctl-lib, and vzquota . 2. rpm -Uvh vz* --nodeps # there are some deps which can be safely ignored. 3. intall ovzkernel (I'm building it from sources, but you might want to use a binary package) 4. create an empty template by doing the following: # cd /vz/template/cache # touch empty.txt # tar czf empty.tar.gz empty.txt # rm empty.txt 5. initiate the initial VPS that wouldbe used as a template: # vzctl create 100 --os-template empty (there will be some errors during the execution of this command but they can be ignored) 6. install Owl into /vz/private/100 by modifying installworld.conf and executing 'make installworld' . 7. add 'route add default venet0' to /vz/private/100/etc/rc.d/rc.local and make this file executable. 8. you are readyto start VPS 100 with vzctl start 100 . 9. once you are satisfied with the configuration of the VPS OS, shutdown the VPS with vzctl stop 100 a. remove /vz/private/100/etc/ssh/ssh*_host* (host keys) b. tar czSf /vz/template/cache/owl-2.0.tar.gz --one-file-system -C /vz/private/100 . c. From now on, you will be able to create Owl-based VPSes with vzctl create <VEiD> --os-template owl-2.0 P.S. I've typed all of this directly from my head, but I believe that the commands are correct. -- (GM) -- To unsubscribe, e-mail owl-users-unsubscribe@private and reply to the automated confirmation request that will be sent to you.
