Hi there,

Only to the kernel, no more, none else.

Don't know where this comes from, but it definately relates _only_ to
the guest.

JW> FC5 has glibc 2.4 whereas FC4 has glibc 2.3. Is that really the

It is definately an effect of a guest related problem, which does
_not_ relate to the hosts glibc.

Here I'm only using the vserver build method I described in the HowTo
- that's working pretty fine.

Sorry for not having a direct solution but maybe my answer will help
you to find it.
