I believe his point is regardless of util-vserver version, if you dont
have corresponding directory for fc10 (or any other) in your
/usr/lib/util-vserver/distributions you wont' be able to build such a
All three of us use pretty much the same util-vserver version, the only
difference is util-vserver for CentOS included only distributions up to f9
while Mandriva had f10 and f11 on the top of that.
Could we just copy f10/ and f11/ directories from your Mandriva to our
CentOS, would it work?
