So that we can know, can you give an idea of what the problems are? I
am using the debian kernel patch and util-vserver packages on 4
different machines and I haven't had any problems. This does not mean
that there are no problems, but I haven't seen any and would like to
know what might be things I could encounter (and others probably want
to know too).

Additionally, I have updated kernel-patch-vserver so that patch
vs2.0-rc4 is working for debian kernel 2.6.11-7. I am working on
updating the 2.6.8 patch to also work with vs2.0. The Debian 2.6.12
kernel is coming soon (it has been held up by the gcc-4.0 transition),
and when it is available I will update the patch to work with that
kernel as well.

If you wish to be more conservative, and play with a more "stable"
situation, with less enhancements, the Debian vserver patch works
against kernel-source-2.4.27 (in stable, using the vserver stable
vs1.2.10 patch).

The util-vserver package in debian unstable has 0.30.207 available on
all architectures except ia64 (0.30.204-6).

Please do, dont bug Bertl because the debian packages are out of date,
report the bugs using the Debian BTS (install package reportbug and
run it!).
