Hello all.

I'm new to openvz, and trying to install openvz on ubuntu 7.04. But
I'm having some problems that I cannot describe here.

Is openvz for 2.6.20 kernel is stable? Here
http://openvz.org/news/announcements/kernel-2.6.20-20070328 I see that
it's already stable, and usable. But
http://wiki.openvz.org/Download_kernel_2.6.20 and
http://openvz.org/download/kernel/ says that it's not stable yet.
Which one is the true information? If it is stable, can I install it
on Ubuntu feisty? Is anyone had success running openvz on ubuntu?

It is usable, but _probably_ not quite stable, and the text doesn't say 
that it is stable. What it says is that "software [is] for the most 
recent stable Linux kernel 2.6.20", meaning the mainstream kernel 2.6.20 
is stable, but not the OpenVZ kernel based on it.

That's right.

You definitely can install this on Ububtu, some info is available from 
http://wiki.openvz.org/Installation_on_Debian (I guess it will work fine 
for Ubuntu). Still, I recommend to use our stable branch, 2.6.18-based, 
unless you really want to be on the bleeding edge.
