Question about OpenVZ and kernel versions
I have some Linux experience, but I'm a total noob wrt kernel versions.
I have a Resource Pool (OpenVZ) VPS package, and while I absolutely love it, I notice that the kernel it's running is v2.6.32, and a couple applications I want to install require a later kernel version (v3.x).
So my questions are:
What is the current version of an OpenVZ kernel?
Any kernel upgrades with OpenVZ would be at the server (and thus the host) level, not the container level, correct?
Would I be better off finding a KVM provider?
My account is with HostMyBytes (cue insults and mud slinging) but it's their $15.49 per month tier, and I'm only paying $4 per month, so I'm not giving it up any time soon, though I am open to another, separate solution.
