User Mode Linux: Coming to a Kernel Near You, Part 2
When We Last Left Our Story...
March 18, 2003
There are a number of fundamental additions coming in the next Linux kernel. One of these will be a great boon to software developers, beta testers, product reviewers, hosting services, and more: User Mode Linux (UML). Just as VMware allows us to run a machine within a machine, UML lets us do run multiple, separate, isolated instances of Linux on a single Linux box.
Seems a bit too good to be true, doesn't it? In Part 1 of this article, we took a closer look at UML, how it works, and the pros and cons involved in determining if this upcoming kernel feature is for you.
Now we continue our look at UML with examining how to connect UML to the outside world and polishing your UML configuration.
