The new vserver package relies on new ability found in the kernel patch ftp://ftp.solucorp.qc.ca/pub/vserver/diffctx-2.4.11-3 . This patch works with 2.4.12 as well. I have not released pre-compiled kernel for now.


chcontext and reducecap command line option

vserver command: S_FLAGS support<

	S_FLAGS="lock sched"

By default, all new vserver are created with S_FLAGS="lock".
