I know it's not a navigation system– TomTom is a GPS, not a server. =P It's Linux nonetheless– the Windows kernel isn't open source, and therefore there's no easy way of compiling it.

What's the actual server machine(s), anyway?

Well, looks pretty smooth. I wondered why MystLore was down a while ago...

Mystress, thanks.

The clock is still off, because I could not upgrade the kernel yet. Today, I looked into it more and noticed that the innocent looking
/etc/fstab
... xfs ... defaults,errors-remount=ro
seems to have been the problem. "errors-remount" seems to be an ext2 option, not a mount option, so the entire mount fails, because xfs doesn't know the option, and with unhelpful error messages, duh!

So, being past this problem, I tried to use a new kernel, but failed again. This time, I am stuck with lsmod/insmod saying "function not implemented". This sounds like the kernel has a new API for loading modules and the old Debian we use doesn't have the right insmod.

I think the best option is to install a current Ubuntu in the virtual machine, the same that I use in the others.
So, I am giving up for now, deferring that to later. For now, the clock will still be off. Thanks for your patience (not having executed me for that yet).

Oh dear, that's quite something.

A) Install new kernel (yuck)
B) Ubuntu (OK)

Yeah, I'd go with Ubuntu.

Although I agree that it makes sense to use the same distro in all your VMs.

P.S. The clock is about 5 hours off right now.

I was just about to ask how the clock was doing, but thanks to your PS, I have no need to ask. XD
