skas3 mode in 2.4.x[edit]

Kernel 2.4.26 with skas3 improved-performance is the far most stable host Kernel I am aware of, for instance kernel2.4.26skas-8 (main site). I have experimented 2.6.11 (Knoppix Kernel) on the host (thread mode), on the same physical machine, and I have saw now and then, some frozen instances of UML guests, occasionaly the host itself. H.

SKAS patch integrated into Vanilla?[edit]

Are you sure that the SKAS patch is integrated into the vanilla kernel? The UML patch is integrated since 2.6.9, and I always thought SKAS and UML should not be/can not be applied to the same kernel tree. Furthermore, I don't find any configuration option in a 2.6.17 vanilla tree stating anything about SKAS. Skas3 isn't in the linus tree, but UML now supports a slightly more complex SKAS approach which doesn't require host kernel patching called SKAS0. I'll fix the article. --fvw* 15:59, 15 July 2006 (UTC)

Interesting work and quick intro to User-mode Linux[edit]

I have found a really interesting presentation for newbies at User-mode Linux:

You can also take a look on other presentations on Jeff Dike home:

UML & JAIL[edit]

can one say that Linux UML is equivilent to BSD Jail ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:17, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

No. UML doesn't restrict what root processes can do, unlike BSD Jail. Also, UML allows the virtual machine to use a different kernel than that of the host OS. UML instances are also not limited to a single IP address. --Mperry (talk) 23:21, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
