  • OpenVZ development kernel branch rebases to 2.6.16.

Compatibility notes

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.
