Hybrid Kernel for CloudLinux 5 - Beta 2

I am happy to announce second beta of hybrid kernel which provides ability to run 2.6.32 kernels from CloudLinux 6 on CloudLinux 5 servers. The beta is based on lve1.1.4 kernel and features significant improvement in speed and stability as well as compatibility with latest versions of CageFS.

To update from previous version of hybrid kernel please use following instructions:

# wget -qO-|bash

This is needed due to conflicts in RPMs between beta 1 and beta 2. In the future you should be able to update hybrid kernel via yum.

To install the kernel on your CloudLinux 5 server, please run:
# yum update rhn-setup --enablerepo=cloudlinux-updates-testing
# /usr/sbin/normal-to-hybrid
# reboot

To convert back to original CloudLinux 5 server:
# /usr/sbin/hybrid-to-normal
# reboot

Please, note following limitations & changes regarding CloudLinux 6 kernel/Hybrid kernel:
  • There is no separate kernel-xen, instead regular kernel package will be installed. That package will satisfy xen requirements, and supports para-virtualization
