just noticed from debian's new package list  (really the corresponding
rss feed ), that debian has enabled vserver builds for kernel 2.6.25.
from the build log  it appears they are using vs126.96.36.199.11, presumable
from herbert's experimental patches .
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).
