Subject Re: CentOS System VM?
Date Thu, 06 Dec 2012 07:30:53 GMT
Granted both debian wheezy and centos/rhel 6, run the same major kernel version 2.6.32 i386
and hopefully same glibc library (need to confirm) - it should be really easy to port the
code over without needing to recompile anything. I don't believe we do anything overly complex
- within application code - that would glue components to specific OS. Applications like apache,
dns masq, haproxy, sshd and dhcp can be stock versions of what OS vendor released.

This is my observations so far and I will give it a shot when time allows to confirm.

If someone knows of reason why this would fail, please let me know so I don't waste my time:)
but I am fairly optimistic.

This sounds great, however I am hoping for updated wiki on how to create your own system vm(distro).

Maybe one day....
