Hello guys & gals,

I have a question regarding openvz and Fedora 16.

I have tested Fedora 16 Final Test Compose 2 with openvz RHEL 6 kernel
and the boot fails. I was using the latest:
- vzkernel-2.6.32-042stab039.5.x86_64
- systemd-37-2.fc16.x86_64.

I've only been able to find the following post in regards to patching
RHEL 6 kernel to work with systemd from Fedora 13, nothing more
recent: org/msg03084.html

So before pursuing this further, I'd like to ask whether openvz will
support Fedora 16 with the current stable/testing kernel? Any ETA or
work already done?

I was unable to get the logs going so there isn't much to to go on
right now (if needed, I can work on it further). I can see the
following errors while booting:
Starting System Logging Service failed, see 'systemctl status
rsyslog.service' for details
(then it continues and another error is among the messages:)
Starting Login Service failed, see 'systemctl systemd-logind.service'
for details
(then it continues up to:)
LSB: OpenVZ startup script.

The boot process stops there and waits indefinitely.

I'm aware that openvz team is concentrating on both improving the
openvz RHEL 6 kernel and also submitting openvz patches to the
upstream, so 3.x openvz kernel isn't to be expected soon. A RHEL 6
kernel compatible with Fedora 16 would be greatly appreciated, though.
