I apologize for sending to Herbert Poetzl directly... I meant to address
the list.

The latest release I see on the website is :

After diddling around with vserver build for quite awhile I am now to
the point where I get the following error :

[root@gw ~]# vserver dns build -m yum --interface eth1: -- -d
You are using a version of yum which is insecure and broken in chroot
related operations; either apply the patches shipped in the 'contrib/'
directory of util-vserver, or ask the author of yum to apply them

In the meantime, 'vyum' will continue with dirty hacks which might not
work when the vserver is running and local DOS attacks are possible.

Execution will continue in 5 seconds...

Exiting on user cancel
rm: cannot remove directory
`/usr/local/etc/vservers/.defaults/vdirbase/dns/proc': Device or
resource busy
rm: cannot remove directory
`/usr/local/etc/vservers/.defaults/vdirbase/dns/.rpmdb': Device or
resource busy

The process hangs after the 5 seconds message and then complains about
its inability to remove directories thereafter. I remove
the /usr/local/etc/vservers/.defaults/vdirbase/dns by hand but it makes
no difference.

If I remove /vservers/dns as well I get a different error :

/vservers/dns/../../../../../../../../../../../..//usr/local/etc/vservers/.defaults/vdirbase/.pkg/dns/yum/cache/base/repomd.xml:1: parser error : Start tag expected, '<' not found
This site is a Mirror for:
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: base
Error importing repomd.xml from base: Error: could not parse
file /vservers/dns/../../../../../../../../../../../..//usr/local/etc/vservers/.defaults/vdirbase/.pkg/dns/yum/cache/base/repomd.xml

I have no /usr/local/etc/vservers/.defaults/vdirbase/.pkg/dns/

I think I must have got off on the wrong foot here somehow, so many
things are going wrong.
