Compiling Debian + OpenVZ /w VSwap ?

Compiling Debian + OpenVZ /w VSwap ?

Hey Everyone.

Has anyone had any success building OpenVZ with VSWAP on Debian, I've tried to compile it using the RHEL VSwap patches and it compiles, but doesn't boot.

So I was wondering if anyone else has any success at it? I really hate CentOS and prefer Debian, but would prefer the VSWAP feature.

Daniel.

  • Did you try converting an OpenVZ .rpm to .deb, such as described here: https://plus.google.com/114658067490332530482/posts/dbHMM22nRv1

    I am no longer affiliated with IPXcore.
  • Ah, I got the Debian kernel and tried the rhel 6 OpenVZ Patch which is ment to work; I'll give this a go.

    We used the alien method on our stuff when we've needed to rush out dev kernels.

    No issues to date, works nicely :)

    On the .32 kernels we were having to rush some since it was blowing out all the time. :(

  • Thanks.

    I prefer Debian, out-of-the-box Debian uses around 32MB of RAM on a server, where as CentOS uses around 120MB
