I recently was priviliged to work with vserver the first time and I can
only say "great" - really easy to use and simply a joy to work with (and
along the way very usefull too ;-).
I was able to set up the necessary environment, to create some guest
with some additional packages beeing installed via vyum, but one awkward
problem is left which I really need to be solved. As I mentioned I can
use vyum after I created a guest using "vserver ... build ... -m yum ...
-d fc5" - all additional packages installed without any problems.
If I now use vcopy to clone a guest, the guest itself (after changing
ip-adress etc.) works fine (it can be started and entered) but vyum
doenst work anymore on those cloned guests (but still works on the
original guest). As far as I can see vyum is the absolutely only thinkg
that doesn't work on cloned guests. The error message I get is:
# vyum clone -- install less
Can not find file for 'RPMSTATEDIR'; aborting
I am using yum 2.6.1, util-vserver (-core etc.) 0.30.210 on fc5
(2.6.17-1.2157_FC5.vs22.214.171.124.rc26.1smp), all guests are fc5 too (created
according to http://linux-vserver.org/VServer+installation+Fedora+Core
Any ideas on this, what could be the problem, are there any other steps
to perform to clone a guest but using vcopy and changing the individual
configuration of the clone?
Thanks in advance!
