I'm new to TKL, after following the project from a distance for about a year. I'm working on a web app stack that, unlike the current crop of appliances, includes quite a few packages. Rather than a utility appliance, it is meant to be a cluster node.
Anyway, I'm curious if it is possible to install a TKL iso (which I'll get by using tkpatch) on a random VPS host? I know VPS.net and other hosts have a library of appliances that you can install, but this is a custom appliance and I'm looking for the flexibility of installing it on ANY VPS.
I've seen it mentioned that this can work, but I've been completely unable to find a how-to. Please note also that I've been out of the server admin world for about a decade. But you never forget unix, right? And my beard is long and grey.
I did search for a HowTo but didn't find one. I think the biggest issue I can see is that presumably the Appliance has a kernel and most VPS hosts use their own kernel? Is there something I need to look for to know which VPSes can run appliances?
Thanks in advance!
