An example of some scripts and building a UML on Woody.

User Mode Linux, or UML, allows you to run a virtual Linux machine on a host Linux machine by compiling the kernel into a program and having it boot a file based root file system. It is of particular interest to developers and those doing DebianHosting.

UML on Etch

The user-mode-linux package is currently available in Etch, and should work out of the box.

UML on Woody

An example of some scripts and building a UML on Woody.

Building your own custom UML machine

It is easy to build a UML kernel on Debian machines since kernel-package enables building a UML kernel just as easily as you can build any Linux kernel image, and the root file system can be create by using dd to build a loopback file system and populate the system using the debootstrap package. Or you may want to try a slick debian-installer based build. The links below provide examples of either approach.
