    OpenVZ on x84_64

    OKay I got openVZ working great with x84 centOS 5.3 but now I am trying it out on x84_64 CentOS 5.3.

    I am folling instructions and when I am running

    "# yum install ovzkernel[-SMP]" it tries to install both x86_64 and i686 kernels. So I answer no and run this command "# yum install ovzkernel[-SMP].x86_64" and it still tries to install both. So is there something I can do or do I just install both kernels.

    I coppied and pasted my shell

    [[email protected] yum.repos.d]# yum install ovzkernel [-SMP].x86_64

    Run "yum install ovzkernel.x86_64" that should install the correct kernel. The -SMP is confusing it and its meant to be an optional choice in the copy/paste

    Try a "yum search ovzkernel " and chose the suitable kernel

    Just a heads up to the people running OpenVZ on a 64bit os with 64bit processor just run command

    "# yum install ovzkernel.x86_64"
    after you already got the repository setup

    Thanks for all your help. I did some further reading and figured out [-smp]installs by default and [-up] are no longer used

    Hope that helps you guys out
