You may face dependency issues when some package would require kernel-headers. E.g.:

~# yum update -y
Actual result that you got : --> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Package: glibc-headers-2.12-1.132.el6.x86_64 (base)
           Requires: kernel-headers >= 2.2.1
Error: Package: glibc-headers-2.12-1.132.el6.x86_64 (base)
           Requires: kernel-headers
 You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem


Due to previous conflicts with the standard package kernel-headers, Parallels provides the package vzkernel-devel for the purpose of building kernel modules.

However, some system packages require the package kernel-headers with the version which matches the installed/running kernel.


For PCS 6.0 and PSBM 5.0, install kernel-headers - the package from the repository of CloudLinux can be used with PCS and PSBM.

For PVC 4.7, install the package compiled for OpenVZ using the following command:

~# rpm -ihv$(uname -r| sed 's/-/\//')/vzkernel-headers-$(uname -r).$(uname -m).rpm

The same packages can be installed inside of the containers, if necessary.
