Hi All...

I just upgraded the kernel on my machine from:

actual:/home/jim/openvz/kernels# uname -a
Linux actual.registrationtek.com 2.6.18-openvz-12-1etch1-amd64 #1 SMP Fri 
May 4 23:37:24 MSD 2007 x86_64 GNU/Linux

To:

vps5000:~# uname -a
Linux vps5000.regtek.com 2.6.18-openvz-13-39.1d1-amd64 #1 SMP Mon Sep 3 
10:11:00 MSD 2007 x86_64 GNU/Linux


I did this because I have been having a memory consumption problem with 
Exim4 I was hoping to resolve.  I had been told that the Exim4 memory issue 
was a known issue and was fixed in later kernels.

Anyhow, I installed the new kernel using dpkg -i and it seems to install 
fine, with no warnings or errors.  It boots and runs fine, even iSCSI. 
But, the odd issue is that the machine name in the prompt is wrong.  As you 
can see from above, it went from:

actual#

To:

vps5000#

The name of the machine in /etc/hostname is actual and vps5000 is the 
highest number vps I have.  Is this a serious issue or can I safely ignore 
it?

Thanks...

Jim

Jim,

Can you run hostname on the host system and inside a couple of VEs? Do
they show the same or different hostnames?

Thanks for reporting. Apparently when porting OpenVZ patchset to debian
kernel utsname() virtualization got screwed... I suggest you to file a
bug to http://bugs.debian.org/, and I have added Debian maintainer of
OpenVZ packages to cc.

Okay, I'll file the bug report tonight.  Is there a reason I should stop 
using this kernel, or is this a minor issue?

Thanks very much Ola.  What package do you want the bug reported against?

Hi Jim

That depends on what you have on the system. In some cases the configuration
is dependent on the hostname. For example exim can get a bit confused if the
hostname is not the correct one.

I will start to look on this bug asap. As Kir said something must have
become wrong when the patchset was merged to Debian.

Best regards,

// Ola

Hi Ola...

As embarrassing as this is, I have to admit that I can't figure out how to 
open a bug report using the link provided below.  That's why the report is 
not filed yet.  Also, I experienced a kernel panic with this kernel. 
Another engineer restarted the system, but because he was accessing via an 
IPMI card (so no text console) he was unable to copy out the associated 
information from the kernel. If there is something I can get you from the 
machine, I'll be happy to do so.

Also, another person I know knows how to open Debian bug reports, but he 
won't be available until after the Jewish holiday.  As soon as I can talk 
with him I'll open the bug.

Hi Jim

You simply write a mail to submit@bugs.debian.org
In the begiggning of the mail, before anything else, you write:

Package: kernel-patch-openvz
Severity: important

And then you describe the fault. It is as simple as that. :)

See above.

Not good. Please file a separate bug about that. I would like to know what
you did when the kernel crashed, so I can debug the problem further.

That would be good.

With the above explanation I assume that you can write one on your own. :)

In the meantime I have looked through the VZ patch and have not found
anything obvious that explains your hostname problem. It seems like all the
places where system_utsname has really been replaced with utsname() and
the utsname() function is identical with the original vz patch.

So it is likely something else. However the patch is huge so I may have
made a couple of mistakes.

Best regards,

// Ola

Hi

Problem found by Alexey Dobriyan <adobriyan@sw.ru>. I'm now building new
source package and kernel packages.

Best regards,

Hi Ola and thanks very much!

I'm wondering, could this problem have caused a kernel panic?
