hi all !

How-to setup OpenVZ on openSUSE 10.2 ?
I have downloaded 2.6.18-openvz kernel from the openvz website, tried
to install:

error: Failed dependencies:
        initscripts >= 5.83 is needed by kernel-2.6.18-ovz028stab031.1.i686
        mkinitrd >= 3.5.5 is needed by kernel-2.6.18-ovz028stab031.1.i686

I had 2 dependencies, which I could not resolve so I forcefully
installed this kernel (with --nodeps), but it still doesn't works -
even not added itself to the GRUB menu, plus it cannot be uninstalled
now due to some stupid error:

opensuse:~ # rpm -e kernel-2.6.18-ovz028stab031.1.i686
error: %preun(kernel-2.6.18-ovz028stab031.1.i686) scriptlet failed,
exit status 1

Is there a way to get OpenVZ working on openSUSE ?
