Hi,all. I got a question about the kernel: I changed the linux kernel due
to some reason, I know using Openvz has to patch the kernel before. But this
is the history, now can I use Openvz upon my changed kernel with the
regular installation process, is there anything I should do?? Thanks very
much to reply.

Best Regards
gene

I don't really understand your question. Did you compile your own kernel and are asking how to install it?

Here I mean the kernel that I‘m now using is not the vanilla or redhat
kernel,I changed the kernel by myself, so is there any difference when
installing OpenVz?

I don't know. I guess it depends on if the kernel packages provided by the OpenVZ Project work for you out of the box... or if you need to compile your own like you have previously. Give one of the stock ones a try and see if it works for you or not. Since you haven't stated why you decided to compile your own... if it was needed for hardware support missing in a vendor kernel... or if you just wanted to... I don't have much info to go on.

TYL,
