  vserver 0.3
  Change log

  1. Enhancements

  1.1. /usr/sbin/vserver enhancements

  The vserver utility is doing the /proc and /dev/pts mount when a
  vserver is started. It was calling the mount command with relative
  path and this was confusing /etc/mtab somewhat. It is now using
  absolute paths.

  vserver is also a little more verbose when starting and stopping a
  vserver. This makes the /var/log/boot.log file a little more explicit.

  1.2. Missing LICENSE file

  The vserver is licensed under the GNU Public License (GPL). The
  package was missing the LICENSE file stating that.

  1.3. Missing readlink utility

  The vserverkillall (used by vserver VSERVER stop) was relying on the
  readlink utility, which is not always available (delivered with
  tetex). The vserver package now includes its own readlink utility in

  2. Bug fixes

  2.1. rebootmgr ineffective when start at boot time

  The rebootmgr service was not working at all. When notified to reboot
  or halt a virtual server, it was completely failing because its
  standard output and standard error channel was pointing to closed
  pipes. Now it redirect the /usr/sbin/vserver command to
  /var/log/boot.log (append).

  2.2. rebootmgr service not restarted by Linuxconf

  When you add a new virtual server, you must restart the rebootmgr
  service so it properly setup its /dev/reboot socket in that vserver.

  The sysv init script was missing the tags used by Linuxconf so it
  knows when rebootmgr must be restarted.
