Hi there !

I'm new to VServer.
I followed both http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/vps/vserver-howto.xml and
to create a vserver Guest which would run a already crafted Gentoo
filesystem (packed in a tgz).

Building worked, but I can't start, I got this by doing "vserver myguest
start" :

secure-mount: mount(): Operation not permitted
/etc/vservers/myguest/fstab:1:1: failed to mount fstab-entry

I've got this at the very beginning, 5 times (varying on fstab:x:y: bit),
then I've got something about "chbind" crashing, and finally "Failed to
start vserver 'myguest'".

I have absolutely no idea about what to do, and any help would be very
I run a linux kernel with grsec 2.1.14, vs, and
util-vserver 0.30.215, from a Gentoo box.
Kernel is a vanilla kernel patched with grsec+vserver experimental patch
from VServer website, util-vserver is got from Gentoo portage repo.

Thanks in advance.
