As I promised in my previous post, the OpenVZ support is getting usable. I have a coreboot ROM image containing a payload consisting of a Linux kernel, the OpenVZ tools vzctl and vzquota, along with uClibc and busybox.

To test this stuff, you need to download the ROM image from here along with the qemu VGA BIOS. Put both of them in the same directory (let’s say ~/BIOS) and just run qemu like this:

qemu -L ~/BIOS -hda /dev/zero

You can see the tools are there, but In order for it to be really useful you need a disk image containing an OpenVZ template. I haven’t created such an Image yet, but stay tuned, soon i’ll post a link to such an image.
