I need to run a few more Linux server securely, but haven’t got the extra machines to run it on. VMware tend to slow the virtual servers a bit too much, especially if you’re running a lot of it. So I started to look at [ User Mode Linux ] (UML).
To my surprise, if your existing server runs Debian stable (woody), and you have backports.org listed as one of its software repository, then installing UML is as easy as “apt-get install user-mode-linux”. Nice ! 🙂 thanks to (I think) Matt Zimmerman for this. /usr/share/doc/user-mode-linux/README.Debian also has some extra pointers.
This will keep me busy for days for sure. I’ll post any UML-related tutorials here as soon as I have it ready. Stay tuned.
