Hi OpenVZ Community

Today I was playing a bit with the new ploop feature, or at least I wanted to give it a try - but I didn't get that far.

I'm running a Debian Squeeze System and followed the steps here: to install all needed packages.

Note: You should list ploop-lib too as a requirement!

I've tested with latest stable and testing kernel.

What's the problem?

using vzctl convert or vzctl create --template ploop doesn't work as it complaints about missing ploop support in kernel.

I tried modprobe and added ploop and pfmt_ploop1 to /etc/modules but I can't get it to work.

I am not sure if it is really a problem of the module not beeing loaded or just that vzctl doesn't recognize it, as using "ploop" directly as a command seems to work.

Does anyone have any hints for me?

Thank you very much!
