    Can you try to install vzctl first...

    Code:
    apt-get install vzctl
    ... and then (in a second step) all other packages?

    Can you run
    Code:
    modprobe vzmon
    and try again?

    Can you post your /etc/apt/sources.list? I'm under the impression that you're using multiple repositories.

    A quick note aside.

    I recommend you installing the official OpenVZ kernel/tools like described here:

    http://wiki.openvz.org/Install_kernel_from_RPM_on_Debian_6.0

    Note that they missed ploop-lib and libcgroup (http://download.openvz.org/utils/libcgroup/) which you need to download/build the same way like the other packages.

    Why?

    Well, I can't tell you from a very technical view but:

    - you'll get ploop support (container in a single file) (this has many benefits)
    - latest versions of all packages needed for openvz
    - I got better general performance (e.g. less resources idle on node)

    However, keeping those packages up-to-date is more complicated as you have to rerun these steps every time a new package is released.

    I'm currently checking if alien builds packages are "based on the current system" or if a .deb built with alien is valid on any other machine with the same architecture/system - in that case, I'm going to try to put a repo online.

    Regards,
    Michel
