There are fresh OpenVZ templates of Openwall GNU/*/Linux userland here:

lftp mirrors.kernel.org:/openwall/Owl/current/vztemplate> ls
drwxr-xr-x  --  ..
-rw-r--r--         109M  2010-09-03 01:16  owl-current-20100903-i686.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--         112M  2010-09-03 01:25  owl-current-20100903-x86_64.tar.gz
-rw-r--r--          453  2010-09-03 02:23  vztemplate.mtree
-rw-r--r--          353  2010-09-03 02:24  vztemplate.mtree.sign

and fresh ISOs here:

lftp mirrors.kernel.org:/openwall/Owl/current/iso> ls | fgrep 0903
-rw-r--r--         457M  2010-09-03 01:23  Owl-current-20100903-i686.iso.gz
-rw-r--r--         462M  2010-09-03 01:32  Owl-current-20100903-x86_64.iso.gz

(live + installable, as usual).

These use the latest "RHEL5 testing" OpenVZ kernel (works well so far) -
well, of course our own builds of it with some minor additional changes:


lftp mirrors.kernel.org:/openwall/Owl/current> ls i686/RPMS/ x86_64/RPMS/ | fgrep kernel
-rw-r--r--         3.8M  2010-09-03 00:07  kernel-2.6.18-194.11.3.el5.028stab071.3.owl1.i686.rpm
-rw-r--r--         3.3K  2010-09-03 00:07  kernel-fake-2.6.18-194.11.3.el5.028stab071.3.owl1.i686.rpm
-rw-r--r--         1.7M  2010-09-03 00:07  kernel-headers-2.6.18-194.11.3.el5.028stab071.3.owl1.i686.rpm
-rw-r--r--         3.9M  2010-09-02 23:59  kernel-2.6.18-194.11.3.el5.028stab071.3.owl1.x86_64.rpm
-rw-r--r--         3.3K  2010-09-02 23:59  kernel-fake-2.6.18-194.11.3.el5.028stab071.3.owl1.x86_64.rpm
-rw-r--r--         1.6M  2010-09-02 23:59  kernel-headers-2.6.18-194.11.3.el5.028stab071.3.owl1.x86_64.rpm

(the kernel-fake packages are for installs into containers, where a real
kernel is not needed but RPM dependencies may need to be satisfied).

For those who didn't know yet, Owl is a security-enhanced Linux distro
with OpenVZ integration:


Any feedback is welcome.
