I had no luck getting baselayout-2 running with Openvz. I did have luck with
taking a regular stage 3, un-taring and chrooting into it, unmerging udev and
creating static nodes under /dev for null, zero, console, ptmx, pytp0, ... and
then re-taring it back into a openvz template. So far it is working beautifully.
I don't understand why Gentoo releases separate openvz and vserver stages when
a small script can convert a regular stage 3?
