Default Problem installing OpenVZ with Debian Etch (2)

First I want to appologize for posting this problem as a comment on the OpenVZ On Debian Etch For Webservers howto. Although it was meant as a comment, I also asked for a possible solution for the problem making the comment better fit for the forum.

My problem concerns the above mentioned howto. A couple of weeks ago I managed to install a working OpenVZ system following the instructions of the howto. Yesterday I tried exatly the same thing, only to find out that the openvz kernel patch no longer applies. Has anyone else experienced the same problems and been able to solve them?

Do you get any error messages? Do you use the exact same kernel as in the tutorial?

Thanks for the reply Falko.

I downloaded all the kernel compilation prerequisites using a sligthly modified version of the aptitude command you describe in your tutorial:
apt-get install kernel-package linux-source-2.6.18 kernel-patch-openvz libncurses5-dev
This should install the same kernel sources and patch as the ones you mention. The error messages I get when running the make-kpkg command are:
START applying openvz patch (OpenVZ kernel patch for virtual server support)
Testing whether "OpenVZ kernel patch for virtual server support" patch for 2.6.18 applies (dry run):
1 out of 7 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file mm/fremap.c.rej
5 out of 44 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file mm/memory.c.rej
1 out of 6 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file mm/mprotect.c.rej
6 out of 29 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file net/ipv4/netfilter/ip_tables.c.rej
1 out of 8 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file net/ipv6/udp.c.rej
"OpenVZ kernel patch for virtual server support" patch for 2.6.18 does not apply cleanly
Patch /usr/src/kernel-patches/all/apply/openvz failed.
So the real answer to your second question is: probably not

Any helpful suggestions are very welcome and highly appreciated but I guess I'll just have to wait until a modified version of the kernel patch will be available in the Etch package repository.

You're using kernel 2.6.18-3 whereas the author of the OpenVZ tutorial uses 2.6.18. That's a difference, and that's why your patches failed.
