No rush, but i am just wondering if FC6 will be supported any time soon. We are moving the majority of our servers to FC6 from FC3 this year.

Thanks,
Mark

Install the FC5 rpm
cd /vz/template/fedora-core
cp -a 5 6
cd 6/i386/config
#change yum.conf to fc6
perl -p -i -e 's/5/6/g' yum.conf
vzpkgcache -f

OK cool, I'll give this a try.

We have a set of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 machines too - what is the easiest way to support that? I can live without the disk space savings of templates if there is a way to copy my hard drive image over and just run it.

I tried this and it is complaining:

Unable to start init, probably incorrect template
