I installed vserver

apt-get install linux-image-vserver-sparc64 util-vserver
vserver-debiantools linux-headers-2.6-vserver-sparc64

But after the installation the system shows:

Linux-VServer capability not detected in kernel.

Mmmm ok.
I reboot the machine and run

$ uname -ar
Linux gandalf 2.6.32-5-vserver-sparc64 #1 SMP Thu May 19 08:03:14 UTC
2011 sparc64 GNU/Linux

The question: is the system ready for the vservers or not?
