- Is it possible to run vservers based on different distro on ?
Yes, no problem. For now the vserver project is a little
redhat/mandrake aware, but some are using it with other distro.
Once a service in running in a vserver, it is talking directly to the
kernel. So a debian vserver could be running on a redhat server
or the reverse. The only issues are
- A vserver is normally created from the root server. If you intend
to run a different distribution inside a vserver, you will
have to copy it from another server, or find a way
to install the package somehow.
- The /usr/sbin/vserver is redhat-ish and assumes the services
are configured in runlevel 3. We intend to solve this
by having each vservers runs it owns /sbin/init. As such
each vserver will have its own way of enabling the services.
From /usr/sbin/vserver, the only thing to do would be to
start/stop/signal /sbin/init in the vserver.
