I'm trying to set up a test environment of name servers. I downloaded
the BIND tarball to one of the Virtual Environment, and tried to
compile it. That didn't work, because there's no gcc installed.

So I tried compiling it at the management level which did work, and
transferred the compiled version over to the VE. When I did a make
install make did run, but ended with errors.

How do I create a VE that will compile and install something like
BIND? I'm sure there are lots of libraries that may be needed.

I'm new to OpenVZ. Am I missing something obvious?

I'm running CentOS 4.4 in all VE's.

Al, the first thing you want to do is install yum in your vps from the host
node. You would do that from the Host Node with something like this:

vzyum <vpsid> install yum

<vpsid> being the id of the vps you want to install yum in.

Then I would ssh into the vps and using yum install BIND or at least the
libraries you will need to compile BIND.

You would do that with something like this:

yum install bind

you just need to install gcc in your VE if it is missing.
Install yum and then setup CentOS repository, after that:
# yum install gcc

Thanks,

why you do not install gcc into VE? I'm handling VE almost as ordinary
system running on physical HW. Template which come with OpenVZ (at least
for Debian which I'm using) is very basic instalation of Linux, I have
to install there numerous packages to be able use it for my work.

BTW: Maybe you can try to find pre-build package of Bind for CentOS.
Bind is very common piece of software it must somewhere.

Best regards

cause templates are done as a basic system which can be run
and everyone can isntall then everything he wants.
you can tar your enhanced VE then and use it as template
for future VEs. Most people wouldn't like to have huge VEs
with everything installed from the beginning.

Thanks,

That's why it is called "minimal" -- it's a boilerplate, so you should
use apt-get/aptitude/any-other-tool to install whatever you need on top
of that. By the way you can tar the result and use it as a template to
create other VEs.

Thanks for all the responses. I didn't install yum on the VE.

Instead, I used vzyum from the host mode to install gcc, flex, byacc,
which is what Bind-8 demands to do an install.

Thanks for the help.

Still -- why not just "vzyum VEID install bind"?
