I am facing this serious problem after starting up a guest vserver. I
am using vsever 2.0 on a linux kernel. There is absolutely
no issue starting up the 0 context. However as I start the guest, its
starts fine but the hosting machine doesn't recognize any keyboard
input(Only mouse works in the system).

Login from a different machine is possible though. I see the following:

[root@xion root]# vserver vs-vm1 status
Vserver 'vs-vm1' is running at context '100'
Number of processes: 5
Uptime: 00:16

[root@xion root]# vserver vs-vm1 enter
root@vs-vm1 / # ps
  PID Uid VmSize Stat Command
    1 root 536 S init
 4548 root 536 S init
 4549 root 940 S /bin/bash /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit
 4560 root 412 S fsck -T -C /
 4561 root 512 S fsck.ext3 -C0 /dev/hda10
 4722 root 1216 S /bin/bash -login
 4751 root 636 R ps

This is my fstab entry at the guest
root@vs-vm1 / # cat /etc/fstab
/dev/hda10 / ext3 defaults 1 1
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0

root@vs-vm1 / # mount
/dev/hda10 on / type ext3 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw,nodiratime,nodev)
none on /tmp type tmpfs (rw,nodev)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw)

I used the following command to create the guest vserver
$ pwd
$ /usr/src/util-vserver-0.30.209/
$ ./scripts/vserver-build -n vs-vm1 -m skeleton --hostname vs-vm1
--initstyle plain --context 4 00 --netdev=eth0 --force

Any suggestions?
