Robert Nelson released an updated version of vzpkg2, pkg-cacher as well as OS Template Metadata packages for Fedora, CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu. In all there are 48 different OS Templates that can easily be made using this software and I'm wanting to get more people in the community interested so I made a screencast.
If you want the full-quality version, right-click on the following URL and save as. It is an Ogg Theora video and recorded with gtk-recordMyDesktop:
vzpkg2-screencast.ogv (69MB) (Right-click, Save Link As...)
I just recently started playing around with installing desktop environments inside of a VPS. It takes a little work as you really don't want to accidentally replace your vzdev package with a distro's stock udev package. Anyway, the video below was resized for embedded flash playback and there is no sound. If you want a MUCH higher quality video, you can can right-click and save as: openvz-via-vnc-with-migration.ogg.
Read the full article for the embedded video because I didn't want it to stretch out the front page.
I learned about a handy dandy program today named recordmydesktop and the GUI for it, gtk-recordmydesktop. Seems to work pretty well. How well? So well that I actually ran out and bought a microphone so I could record the following video.
I've done a few presentations on OpenVZ and I had some slides made so... what the heck... I thought I'd slap together a presentation video.
The video is 800x600 and I didn't want to stretch the center column on the front page, so read the full story to see the included video.
