Hi Leonardo,

Thank you for reporting this in here.  I wish everyone did report on
both their problems and their successes with Owl in here as well.

What specific option(s) did you want enabled (and ended up enabling in
your custom build)?  We may consider enabling them by default in the
next official build.

You needed to apply two patches: the OpenVZ patch found in the FTP
directory above and the Owl patch found in our native tree, e.g. here:

BTW, all of these files (the kernel tarball and two patches) are also
found under /usr/src/world on Owl CDs, so you did not really have to
download anything extra.  I understand that it's sometimes quicker to
download than to loopback-mount an ISO, though.

That's right.  The same file is also available in our native tree (as
dot-config-i686 or dot-config-x86_64).

I don't recall ever seeing this error.

You did not actually need the NFS server, but had to compile it in to
fix the compilation error, correct?

linux-2.6.18-194.26.1.el5.028stab079.1-owl.diff includes some fixes that
may be relevant.

Thanks again,
