OpenVZ has made kernel and tools repo available for Debian Wheezy users.
Read below for more information. Everyone who is using Wheezy is advised
to switch to this repo.

There are two repositories for Debian Wheezy, named wheezy and wheezy-test:

* "wheezy" provides RHEL6 stable kernel (currently 042stab081.3)
* "wheezy-test" provides RHEL6 testing kernel (currently 042stab082.6)

Both repositories also have a dummy package named linux-image-openvz-amd64
that depends on an appropriate latest kernel version.

Currently, user-space tools (namely vzctl 4.5, ploop 1.9, vzquota 3.1
and vzstats 0.5.2) are only available from the "wheezy-test" repository.
These packages will eventually be copied to "wheezy".

cat << EOF > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openvz-rhel6.list
deb http://download.openvz.org/debian wheezy main
deb http://download.openvz.org/debian wheezy-test main

Currently, kernel is only built for AMD64. If there will be a sufficient
demand for x86, it will be added later.
