Initializing ReadyKernel

Virtuozzo ReadyKernel is a kpatch-based service shipped with Virtuozzo 7 and Virtuozzo Linux and available out-of-the-box on hardware nodes with active licenses.

To start using ReadyKernel on Virtuozzo 7 or Virtuozzo Linux 7, perform the following steps:

  1. Run the initialization wizard: # readykernel init
  2. If required, enable automatic daily downloading and installation of the latest ReadyKernel patches by pressing 'y' when prompted. If enabled, the service will check for updates daily at 12:00 PM server time by means of the cron.d script. > Do you want to enable automatic updating? (Y/n) y

Once ReadyKernel is initialized, it will automatically download, install, load and display information on the latest available kernel patch.
