I am new to vserver. I read the very good introduction

vserver: 2.4.25-vs1.3.8

First Problem:
edison:~ # chcontext bash
New security context is 49152
edison:~ # ps
Error: /proc must be mounted
  To mount /proc at boot you need an /etc/fstab line like:
      /proc /proc proc defaults
  In the meantime, mount /proc /proc -t proc
edison:~ # ls /proc/
. .. 1 1309 1317 mounts self

With the help of google I found that vproc is needed.
for file /proc/*;
 do echo $file;
 vproc -e $file && echo OK || echo FAILED;

vproc does return 0 if failed. Should be easy to fix.

Now it works. I think the error "/proc must be mounted" is
frequent and should be in the FAQ.
It would be nice to have a list of proc entries which
should be visible. Or make the entries without security
risc always visible by default.


- Would be nice if you could download the mailarchiv as mbox.

- Typo (Utils):
   man vps
   that enables ps to show you *the* all the processes

- How can I list the current status with vproc (hidden/visible)?

- What should be used: setattr or vproc?

- Utils: Why is S_FLAG sched not the default?

- Utils: I think it would be better if
   the config file /etc/vservers/foo.conf created by "vserver foo build"
  does not contain "if $PROD".

- Utils:
   vserver: if test "$UTIL_VSERVER_AVOID_COPY"
   I think this is needed very often. I would split
   the build process in a copy and a sett permissons
   I prevere to copy the root of a vserver myself, since
   it should not be the one of the host.

- General: It is sad that there are several FAQs and
  a wiki. It is easier for newbies if there is one central

- A link from
   Links to the wiki-mailinglist. There the link to the archive is broken.

Thank you very much for this software!
