Sorry I haven't been around but my boss has caught the vserver fever and has
me converting literally *everything* to guests! :)

I have not had the time to keep up with this list or the website and to be
honest I don't yet, so I'm going to be lazy and ask.

I am currently using the following:

vanilla kernal and patch :

Gentoo packages for


 baselayout-vserver 1.11.13-r1

I see that 2.1.0 was released in Dec. Is this the latest stable?
What newer kernel(s) will the patch work with?

I see that the latest kernel in portage is vanilla-sources-2.6.16_rc6

I may be biting my own tail, but I gave up on the gentoo sources kernels due
to the extremely heavy patching. I find the vanilla kernels perform noticably
faster and seem more stable.

Everything I am running is rock stable so I'm not positive upgrades are truly
needed but would like to incorporate any other features/fixes my above
versions may be missing.

Last question... has any progress been made on the proposed network code
changes to allow each guest to have a true localhost and more than 16 ip
addresses without falling apart?

"...and the hordes of M$*ft users descended upon me in their anger,
and asked 'Why do you not get the viruses or the BlueScreensOfDeath
or insecure system troubles and slowness or pay through the nose 
for an OS as *we* do?!!', and I answered...'I use Linux'. "
