Hey guys, I’m having a problem.

I’m installing a new vserver and it’s on a computer that has special
hardware and often times special jobs. I’m using RedHat 8 as my host and I’
ve used Alexey Lyashkov’s script for building a redhat kernel rpm.

At first, things were really not working… then I realized I hadn’t rebooted
with the new kernel. ;-) So, the things worked better after that. I was
able to build a new vserver ok, but now I can’t start it. When I try, I get
this error:
    Server testserver is not running
    Can't set the ipv4 root (Bad address)

I checked dmesg and found this message in the boot log:
    s_context_status_write: can't open file .vservers!

Here’s what I’ve installed:

My config for the “testserver” vserver looks like:
# egrep -v "^\W*#" testserver.conf
if [ "" = "" ]; then
case $PROFILE in
S_FLAGS="lock nproc"
ULIMIT="-H -u 1000"

I’ve recompiled the src rpm for the vserver tools so that it should match
what’s on my system. When I do
    chbind --ip sleep 1
I get:
    Can't set the ipv4 root (Bad address)

I’m not sure what this means… Any help is greatly appreciated. By the way,
I have several other vserver’s running fine… This is the only one I’ve done
using the “rebuilding a redhat kernel” process. (which I’m doing to ease
the process of installing other software)
