Re: Checkpoint and restore on 64 bit Debian host.

I'm currently running several servers (for development environments) on Debian Squeeze but am in the process of migrating to CentOS 6 because it seems to be a better supported environment and also provides an LTS OS, whereas Debian's support lifecycle is more "nuanced." My assumption is also a larger bas of OpenVZ users run on RHEL-derivatives than Debian, so it is always a safer bet. Running RHEL6 kernels on Debian boxes since more problematic than migrating to CentOS, even though I prefer Debian-based distros. My other concern is the long term viability of OpenVZ on non-RHEL-based distributions given that Ubuntu dropped OpenVZ support and it seems that Debian will as well, given that (for good or evil) LXC seems to be the container-based solution that Debian and Ubuntu are going forward with. The only problem I've encountered with OpenVZ on Debian (which is also a concern) is http://bugzilla.openvz.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1747 - mdf On Fri, Sep 30, 2011 at 6:05 PM, Kirill Kolyshkin <kolyshkin@...> wrote: > You don't have to switch the OS, just use rhel6 kernel.
