Yes, I am using 0.30.208.

I'm going to try a CentOS 4 install as soon ( as I menting in another
message ) I get a new power supply for one of my systems at home. Looking
at the sources.list for apt I tried a couple of pings and they failed.
The CentOS 4 HOWTO looks , at first glance , to make this a non-problem
since I understand yum better than apt.

The idea to break them out into a separate package would be good.

I'll look for the patch instructions and give it a try.

Missed the reboot solution. ( Feels too Windowsy :-)

Just for fun here it is!

# vserver test start
No such file or directory

An error occured while executing the vserver startup sequence; when
there are no other messages, it is very likely that the init-script
(/etc/rc.d/rc 3) failed.

Common causes are:
* /etc/rc.d/rc on Fedora Core 1 and RH9 fails always; the 'apt-rpm' build
  method knows how to deal with this, but on existing installations,
  appending 'true' to this file will help.

Failed to start vserver 'test'

BTW, I was suspecting the RPM build was bogus so I did a .configure ; make
; make check ; make install and I'm still get the errors.
