Hi
Although I have been using Linux for some years I have no idea how to fiddle with it.
I have tried to follow the instructions on this page http://wiki.openvz.org/Quick_installation and it just doesn't work.
The yum command 'yum install ovzkernel[-smp]' gives this error 'No Match for argument: ovzkernel[-smp]' so I tried without the [-smp] and get:
--> Populating transaction set with selected packages. Please wait.
---> Package ovzkernel.i686 0:2.6.18-53.el5.028stab051.1 set to be installed
--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Conflict: lksctp-tools conflicts kernel >= 2.6.10
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: lksctp-tools conflicts with kernel >= 2.6.10

I have tried to unistall lksctp-tools.rpm but it say it does not exist!

I have now tried the RPM way and that went through ok but on the above page it says the grub 'it will be configured automatically:' but it isn't!
I have changed it manually as per that page but it now hangs on boot when 'uncompressing Linux... Ok, booting the kernel'.

I am using a IBM T43 laptop on Centos 4.
Can anyone help with a much simpler install instructions, or better still tell me where there is a Windows version? ;o)

When removing a rpm, you don't add the .rpm. 'rpm -e lkstcp-tools' is the command, or 'yum remove lkstcp-tools'

No windows version. Virtuozzo, the commercial product from the same mfg, will run on Windows.

One question: what do you want to do with OpenVZ? What are your goals?

Hello Rob,

Could you please check these 2 links? i hope they can help you. Smile

http://forum.openvz.org/index.php?t=msg&goto=26174
http://forum.openvz.org/index.php?t=msg&goto=24080

In brief:
- 2.6.18-x RHEL5-based kernel without any flavor does have the support for SMP, smp flavor is dropped
- please try 'rpm -e lksctp-tools' once more (if you don't really need it). Probably some misprint gave the message about the absence of the package.
- Unfortunately there exists only commercial Virtuozzo solution for Windows...

If your problem is solved - please, report it!
It's even more important than reporting the problem itself...

Hi
I finally got it installed with HyperVM and what a great product.
I have a small ISP company and do all my hosting and dedicated servers using VMWare Server on Windows.
I think I have along way to go with OpenVZ before I use it in a live enviroment.
Is it possible to run MS Server 2003 in a VE?

If you don't plan on running linux, you're probably better to stick with VMware. You can only run specific linux distributions in a VE in OpenVZ. OpenVZ is very good and has very low overhead, but you must know linux and it cannot run anything like vmware.
