Hello, I'm trying to get OpenVZ
up and running on my Slackware box and all the instructions are for debian based distros. I was hoping I could get a few translations from any one who is multilingual.
First of all, I've been following these
instructions to install. I have allready compiled the 2.6.18 kernel with the openvz patch and have my Slack box up and running with it.
Now the instructions say I need to send some parameters to the kernel to get everything to work right. It says to configure GRUB like so:
title Fedora Core (2.6.8-022stab029.1)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.8-022stab029.1 ro root=/dev/sda5 quiet rhgb vga=0x31B
Is this just basicly telling me to add these kernel parameters (quiet rhgb vga=0x31B) to my lilo.conf? Anyone know the correct syntax off the top of their heads?
Next, it talks about configuring sysctl.
# On Hardware Node we generally need
# packet forwarding enabled and proxy arp disabled
net.ipv4.ip_forward = 1
net.ipv4.conf.default.proxy_arp = 0
# Enables source route verification
net.ipv4.conf.all.rp_filter = 1
# Enables the magic-sysrq key
kernel.sysrq = 1
# TCP Explict Congestion Notification
#net.ipv4.tcp_ecn = 0
# we do not want all our interfaces to send redirects
net.ipv4.conf.default.send_redirects = 1
net.ipv4.conf.all.send_redirects = 0
I don't really know what sysctl is, but this kind of looks like /proc stuff. Will echoing these values into the <I forget the actual term, proc file system?> acomplish the same thing? If I did that, I would have to add the commands to the rc.local or somthing?
Other then those things, is there anything anyone would like to share that can make my life easier? I'm sure I could find these answers myself, but I'm not sure I know enough about all this to make sure I found the best answer.
