Hello Folks,

I'm currently negotiating with some hosting providers in Germany in
association with Gentoo Linux developer Patrick Lauer. Hopefully we
will have a system live by the 2nd or 3rd of November at

When our machine goes live, I will be submitting a page to the Wiki
and mirroring the documentation on my personal site at
http://hardcore-linux.net/vserver (which isn't available yet) directly
related to the setup and use of linux-vserver hosts and guests in a
gentoo or mixed gentoo/other environment.

I will not be covering the basics of installing Gentoo Linux, as that
has already been thoroughly documented at http://www.gentoo.org. I
will be covering, however, the special steps needed to take a gentoo
stage1 or greater tarball and modify it for use inside a linux-vserver

Hopefully, at some point in the future, this development work will
result in a python application capable of being executed in a fresh
gentoo stage install that will "fix" any incompatabilities and perhaps
even a full gentoo-supported profile for use inside linux-vserver.

I have already pointed one of the gentoo hardened project developers,
Josh Brindle (method on irc.freenode.net #gentoo-hardened) at the
current Linux-Vserver-Paper and he agrees with me that getting
Linux-Vserver and other hardened packages such as SELinux working
together would probably result in greater security for the
gentoo-hardened project's users.

I just wanted to bring everyone up to date on my actions in attempt of
getting Gentoo Linux to officially support linux-vserver.
When our server is online, we will most likely be offering accounts to
Gentoo Linux developers who request them, so they can see how the
whole process works.

Thanks for your time,
Allen Parker
