Nope. if you check freehackers.org - I've stolen the optimal compile
settings from there. I've also tried i686 - no go :-( Anyways it seems
to run quite fast - ofcourse my server was a PII-233mhz so compared to
that, it should be fast :-) If you want some time <command> test - come
right out with it :-)

No problem. I now have a running RH73 vserver on my Gentoo server ;-)

I'm not going to duplicate you and Cedric's work on how to create a
Gentoo vserver.

In this regard, I would be really happy if you would share your
experiences with this on the list. And I can understand Cedric
changed/updated the vserver utilities - how is that coming? ready to
inclusion into the vserver rpm/src ? Need any help - I'll be willing to
try'em out on my box if you want to.

nope. :-) but no matter. I'm just going to duplicate the install I have
now. (I hope I don't find any faults.. it starts services and all, so I
see no problems).

I'll give it a try, just to see..
