Just a quick update and summary on my attempts so far to handle f15 vservers
* f15 comes with systemd as a replacement of sysvinit; turns out there's a dependency to kernel>=2.6.36 in systemd,
* this appears to be b/c systemd relies on a mount point exposed by the kernel at /sys/fs/cgroup IIUC
* in any case; when trying to manually create a f15 vserver inside a f14 box that runs some 2.6.32 kernel:
. I can build the vserver, enter it and populate it, start services manually...
. however I haven't been able to get the vserver to properly run init upon a later vserver start:
.. if style is set to 'plain', I'm getting:
Couldn't find an alternative telinit implementation to spawn.
the vserver starts but has no service started
(I've made sure to have systemd installed in the guest)
this obviously relates to the issue above
.. if style is omitted or set to sysv, I'm getting another message
No command given; use '--help' for more information.
I'm going to give up on that for now and go for f14 instead, just thought this brain dump might be helpful some day..
