[Announcement] util-vserver 0.26

Item posted by Enrico Scholz <ensc> on Sat 22 Nov 2003 02:45:31 AM UTC.

I just released version 0.26 of util-vserver which can be downloaded at

http://savannah.nongnu.org/files/?group=util-vserver

It is mainly a bugfix release; the new items in detail are:

  • BUGFIX: uninitialized variables in 'ifspec' were fixed and

error-messages will be given out when ioctl() on the requested
interface fails (thanks to Herbert Poetzl)

  • BUGFIX: fixed vc_get_rlimit_mask() to return the queried

values. This step was missing in 0.25 which returned the
error-code only.

  • use the shipped 'virtual.h' header on default instead of the

kernel version. The old Behavior can be restored with the
'--disable-internal-headers' ./configure option

Please note, that when compiling with 2.6 kernel-headers, the headers
From e2fsprogs (http://e2fsprogs.sourceforge.net/) are required. Please
see README for details.

[Announcement] util-vserver 0.27 (posted by Enrico Scholz, Tue 30 Dec 2003 08:30:04 PM UTC)

Hello,

to finish some pending tasks of this year, I just released version 0.27
of util-vserver. It can be found at an interim place at

http://www.tu-chemnitz.de/~ensc/util-vserver/

When savannah's functionality is recovered entirely, it will be uploaded
to the known page at

https://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/util-vserver/

The main new feature is the a new 'vkill' command which is using new
features of vserver 1.1.6+. Changes in detail are:

- added new 'vkill' implementation which uses the syscall from
vserver 1.1.6+.

- BUGFIX: fixed typo in vc_get_version() wrapper which caused an
infinite recursive call of this function; this should not have
affected any userspace program

- BUGFIX: 'vps' accepts multiple arguments now (from Debian patch)

- vc_ctx_kill() was added

- chrootsafe() code was removed since such a functionality seems
to be impossible

- use 'vserver' instead of 'virtual_context' as the syscall name;
this will fix problems with architectures where the syscall is not
at #273.

- BUGFIX: fixed '--enable-apis' ./configure option; formerly, only
'ALL' or none were possible

- moved some old, unused programs/scripts into a seperate 'legacy'/
directory

- BUGFIX: /dev/pts will be mounted with correct options now

- added support for Slackware's init-method (thanks to Stephen
Pearce for the patch)

- API-CHANGE: followed kernel patches and renamed 'ctx_t' datatype
to 'xid_t'.

There are known problems with Red Hat rawhide's e2fsprogs package; see
[1] for details. Calling ./configure as

| ac_cv_header_ext2fs_ext2fs_h=no ./configure ...

and using good kernel headers should workaround it.

Else, I wish everybody a happy new year

Enrico
