Submission + - Why does openvz require SELINUX to be disabled?

Anomalyst writes: All the howto's document declare that openvz must have SELINUX disabled, but none of them explain why this is the case. The Audit2allow process seems to present a solution and I would feel a lot better if a virtual host tasked with running multiple guests pertaining to core functionality had SELINUX protecting it from rogue applications and users. Has anyone actually got openvz to run with SELINUX running?

They must really be shiating their silky little thong panties with what Ghostery and noscript does to their tattletale code. If they have a worthwhile product I'll hear it through word of mouth or an honest report in /. or Fark. They dont use their tools responsibly, with blinking and flashing and loops that you cant disable. So I deny them the right to reach me at all. When hell freezes over and they make appropriate and considerate use of their access to me, mebbe I'll turn it off. Until then I will show them the same lack of consideration and appropriateness.

That's an Ubuntu issue, mainly.

Not really, there's no PPA for RC4. Installation was by git clone & git pull,config, make, make install. I also tried from the tarball, same result no such file for the library import. I'm sure it'll sort out when they start building the .deb, but it doesn't do me any good now, nor does it allow me to help test the RC since I can get it to provision a new domain.

I saw that, it doesn't provide a solution, the file is not in the latest git pull nor in the tarball download. If I was really ambitious I gues I could start downloading & searching prior tarballs, but that really should not have to be done. It would be nice to know what source files generate the library. I have a sneaking suspicion they have renamed, as they did with the "provision" command and the code/library is really there, just not with the name in the import statement. I went through all the names with 'kdc' in them and it was not intuitively obvious that any of them correlated with the policy library. I am not stupid and tried really hard to use other avenues to resolve the issue before p*ssing and moaning, I would imagine things will get better once they start making a .deb package. At this point, the only PPA's I could find were for the alpha releases, sigh. I am really surprised there are not yum/apt/etc nightly packages available. Automating the package release seems like a no-brainer for either the SAMBA or Ubuntu team.

Not expecting a drop-in but I would like it to at least provision a domain or have some response on irc or the samba maing list as to why it fails. Having the wiki howto up to date would not be a bad idea either.
The wiki and most other online resources indicate the one should use the "provision" command. This command is no longer available in the S4RC you must use samba-tool to accomplish the task.
sudo samba-tool domain provision --domain=NEWDOM --dns-backend=BIND9_DLZ --adminpass=badpass --server-role='domain controller'

Unfortunately, attempting to provision on a fresh Ubuntu 12.04 install with the following additional packages:
build-essentials python-software-properties build-essential libacl1-dev python-dev libldap2-dev pkg-config gdb libgnutls-dev libblkid-dev libreadline-dev libattr1-dev openssl (please note these pre-requisite are not documented in the wiki) gives the following error:
" cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
and I cant get an answer as to where to find or build this module or find such info in a web search. All in all, it has been a very frustrating experience.

Submission + - Anybody know of any other products like this?? (

They're called Delta 415s btw. They're cool jeans but like I said they're kinda pricey. I would get these in a second if they were a little cheaper...
