Version number of util-vserver (0.30.205) is a little bit low in this
HowTo; there should be native support for fc3 in recent versions (see

This is probably caused by an outdated sources.list in
/etc/vservers/.distributions/fc3/apt/sources.list so that the apt
repository can not be found. It is possible also that the repository is
incomplete or inconsistent.
Maintaining all these metainformation about the distributions (apt + yum
repositories) becomes hard and I am not sure what I will do regarding
them. Perhaps, they will be outsourced into a separate package which can
be updated more often.

Building the vserver will succeed but it will not be possible to use an
unmodified 'vyum' with a running vserver. Unfortunately, 'yum' does not
provide enough options to workaround this without patches :(

'vprocunhide' (or executing vc_set_iattr(2) manully) *is* required. The
reference rpm (which is mentioned in the howto above also) should register
this script so it gets executed at the next boot automatically.

The exact message (above the general hints) would be interesting.
