How to install libcgroup package on centos 5.5?
I have tried to install the libcgroup package using YUM with following command on 32 bit centOS 5.5:
>yum install libcgroup
I have got following error:
No package libcgroup available.
The file /et/yum.repo.d/CentOS-Base.repo is already have entires for
I have following queries?
1) Does 32 bit centOS 5.5 support cgroup?
2) Do I need to add other repositories on .repo file to install libcgroup package?
I think you are going to need a newer kernel
No libcgroup in any repo, AFAIK.
'libcgroup-0.33' will build on CentOS 5.x (The "el6 version", libcgroup-0.37 failed)
# yum install pam-devel byacc
On which version of kernel on centOS U build libcgroup? Is it on minimum 2.6.24 kernel? I have read somewhere that cgroups work only kernel versio>=2.6.24. Is it right? Or itsit
it can be used on lower version also?
# 4 .
But : No kernel files seem to be required for building libcgroup.
Description : ( from the above mentioned Fedora 11 source )
Control groups infrastructure. The tools and library help manipulate, control,
administrate and monitor control groups and the associated controllers.
I have build the rpm of libcgroup from source rpm & installed both libcgroup & libcgroup-devel.But when I tried to mount a cgroup it throws following error:
# mount -t cgroup -o cpuset red /cgroup/red
mount: unknown filesystem type 'cgroup'
My machine is on 2.6.18 kernel booted.
The mount command isn't suporting the Type=cgroup. Anything more I need to do?

Ref. your post #4 :
""I have read somewhere that cgroups work only kernel version>=2.6.24.""
I guess it means that "groupfs" could be in "kernel-2.6.24 or later" only ?
'libcgroup' is to be used when 'groupfs' ("group file system") is included in the kernel.
And when you actually have a setup with groupfs / groups.
