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
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
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.
