Is it possible to get an openvz tar of the TKL 13.0RC 64bit version.


Is there a script available which you use for the TKL 12.0 version to convert to a openvz version

Otherwise I will try to modify this weekend the old TKLpatch from Jeremy  and see if I can generate an openvz/lxc RC version.

Ok, I used the tklpatch to get a openvz/lxc  tar file from the 13.0RC 64bit iso file... it is just a bit larger than the iso.

Basicly clean up rc*.d startups, confconsole disabled (luckily no upstart anymore), replaced rsyslog with syslog-ng, removed unneeded packages, added inithooks interactive.d and moved some interactive firstboot.d scripts to interactive.d 

I will check on monday if its running nicely on lxc (then I have access to a 64bit machine with lxc installed, I don't have openvz)...

OK, works like a charm

I have now got a TKL13.0RC 64bit running in Virtualbox and inside I have running in a LXC container another TKL13.0RC 64bit.

Removed the shellinabox and webmin in the container. Only thing is that the shutdown and reboot hangs, so it needs some debugging.

But overall..... nice, realy nice...

As I posted on a related thread, I've started looking into TurnKey support for LXC (and docker). I'd be interested if you could share your notes (exactly what you added/removed/changed), experience (issues, bugs, etc.) and ideas (what would make for the perfect image).

[update]: TurnKey LXC support is out - see the announcement for details.

Great to hear that you have the v13.0RC build working in LXC! :)
