                            based on the Fedora 11 template.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1. What's Included in This Update

Updated packages for Virtuozzo 3.0 provide support for Containers based
on the Fedora 11 EZ template.

2. Problem Description

Updated Virtuozzo 3.0 packages include a set of fixes that are required to
create and run Containers based on the Fedora 11 template.

The "basic" configuration sample is usually enough to run most of the
application EZ templates in 'Fedora 11'-based Containers. However, some
templates require a number of system resource limits inside such Containers to
be set to specific values. The table below lists these templates along with the
required limits.

+=================================================+
| Application Template | System Resource Limit                              |
|=================================================|
| jsdk                               | privvmpages >= 200,000                            |
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| tomcat                          | privvmpages >= 1,000,000                         |
|                                       | kmemsize >= 3,500,000                              |
|                                       | numproc >= 80                                              |
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| mailman                      | privvmpages >= 30,000                               |
|                                       | kmemsize >= 3,000,000                              |
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| spamassassin          | privvmpages >= 40,000                               |
+=================================================+

All Virtuozzo 3.0 users planning to run Fedora 11 inside their Containers are
highly recommended to update these packages to the latest version.

3. Affected Components

 - 'vzctl' is the primary tool for Container management. This tool is used
   to create new Containers, start and stop them, configure their parameters,
   etc.

 - 'vztt' is a set of tools used to manage EZ templates. EZ templates introduced
   in Virtuozzo 3.0 are more flexible and easy to manage compared to standard
   templates.


4. Bug Fixes

 #447258 - yum 3.x should be used for "Fedora 11"-based Containers.

 #448141 - Repositories created by createrepo-0.9.7 could not be used with
           Virtuozzo.

5. Obtaining Update

 You can download and install this tools update using the 'vzup2date' utility
 included in the Virtuozzo 3.0 distribution.

6. Installing Update

 Use the 'vzup2date' command to install the new Virtuozzo tools packages.

 The update does not require Virtuozzo restart or system reboot.
