|Warning: This kernel branch is currently frozen.
Essentially that means it is neither maintained nor supported, could contain security vulnerabilities and other bugs, and generally should not be used.
Please check the list of supported kernel branches at Download/kernel page.

- OpenVZ development kernel branch rebases to 2.6.16.
Kernel 2.6.16-026test005.1 has the same functionality and feature set as the latest stable kernel (022stab072.2), except for the following:
- 4 Gb split is currently not implemented; this feature is appropriate only for x86-based systems with more than 16 Gb of RAM;
- fair CPU scheduler is currently not implemented. It is a work in progress and will be avaiable in the following releases;
- when ip_conntrack module is loaded, connection tracking on hardware node is enabled by default, opposed to 2.6.8-based kernel where it is disabled. The behaviour is changed due to multiple complaints from OpenVZ users. In order to fall back to the old behaviour, use ip_conntrack_disable_ve0=1 parameter to the ip_conntrack module.
For the complete list of changes in this release, see git changelog for kernel 026test005.1.
You need only one kernel RPM so please choose the appropriate one depending on your hardware:
- If your x86 (i686, IA32) machine has more than 4 GB of RAM, choose
- If there is more than one CPU available (or a CPU with hyperthreading), use the
- Otherwise, use the plain kernel RPM (
