Ah, ok, then the key is in the CentOS kernel headers, which are different from 
normal ones (they use linux-libc-headers IIRC). Will put the proper patch in 
next -bb.

[uml-user] descriptor referring to the console


I have finished the linux from scratch.
So I have started a root_fs from scratch too.

When I run the command:

loadkeys br-abnt2.map.gz

There is the message:

couldnt get a descriptor referring to the console

I found a possible solution:
chmod u+s loadkeys

However, this not solved the error.

The list of the /dev is:

Use COW files, read docs for that at:

[uml-user] Running Multiple UMLs

 
hi

for running Multi UML, can i maintain  that many seperate kernel pool and file systems.

i come 2 know that we can share file systems between virtual machine but what about kernel software.

whether i should maintain kernel software for each of virtual machine ?



please expain me

[uml-user] recommended host linux 64bit/32bit

Hi,

I am migrating my dedicated server to a Pentium D820 2.8 ghz CPU (dual 
core). This cpu supports EM64T. This machine would only be used to run 
user-mode linuxes. No software (except ssh) would run on the host linux. 
As skas3 seems to be not fully supported on 64bit systems, would you 
suggest installing a 32-bit or a 64-bit linux as host. Will skas3 
support for 64-bit host linux soon be fully supported ? I am asking this 
because due to the fact the server is running at a remote location, 
having someone installing me another host os would be costly.

Thanks in advance
Bye,
David Arendt

Uhm, I *think* the answer to your question is "no, unless you want to run
different kernel versions in different UMLs".

loadkeys isn't supposed to work in UML. We don't implement font switching 
(consolefonts handling), and we don't interact at all with the keybord. 
That's all.

Well, we've just discovered that the most important part (for performance) of 
SKAS3 *is* supported (instead of "mode=skas0"/"skas0" pass simply "noprocmm", 
the UML will run happily).

I don't have data about the performance loss, but I think on this side it'd be 
not big.

However, the SYSEMU code isn't implemented for x86_64. And that is a bigger 
problem indeed for performance. Look at the end of

http://sysemu.sourceforge.net/

But ignore the "60%" number since it's a micro-benchmark (i.e. unlikely to 
represent a real application). The 33% one is more realistic.

[uml-user] UML + iSCSI

Hi,

I'm willing to play with iSCSI, but lacking physical machines, I thought
I could play with iSCSI with UML hosts. Unfortunately, while iSCSI is
supported with 2.6.15.4 i386 kernels, it is not supported with 2.6.15.4
UML kernels. Is it supposed not to work or is the option simply lacking
in the configuration?

If it is supposed to work, would it be possible to add the otion to the
configuration for 2.6.17 (or 2.6.18 if it's too late)? I think iSCSI is
as useful as nbd, which seems to be supported.

Thanks,

Nicolas Boullis
