just noticed from debian's new package list [1] (really the corresponding
rss feed [2]), that debian has enabled vserver builds for kernel 2.6.25.
from the build log [3] it appears they are using vs2., presumable
from herbert's experimental patches [4].


i only refer to debian's choice of vserver patches because i use it
as a vote of confidence and presume that somebody has done due-diligence and
it's not totally borked. i'll test it on my workstation, but won't put it
into "production" on my server (though i might need to on a new server
for reasons of hardware support only found in kernels more recent than

on my workstation, for occasional testing purposes, i use whatever debian
testing has available (and for 2.6.25 that seems to be experimental,
assuming it eventually migrates to testing/lenny). on my server i use the
latest stable patch and matching vanilla kernel.

it enables some extremely beneficial functionality (user-land
virtualization and separation, besides security).
