Short Debian installation:

  • install etch as you please, but keep in mind that the root path of the private machines should use ext3 (or ext2 if you're retro) filesystem as quota and other interesting features won't work on real filesystems like xfs. (this is a limitation of OpenVZ, not proxmox.)
  • install openvz kernel ( linux-image-openvz-686 ) if you want, it'll save you some errors when installing openvz kernel dependent packages. alternatively you can do dpkg -a --configure later.
  • use the apt repository deb http://download.proxmox.com/debian etch pve
  • install packages: proxmox-ve, libhtml-embperl-perl, apache2-mpm-prefork (with their dependencies, I suggest to use aptitude and a repo like file:/cdrom/proxmox/ from the CD image)
    • embperl will be fscked if you do not use prefork apache:

  • keep -pve kernel if you do not need some advanced kernel features, or use an OpenVZ/Debian one if you do (like software RAID)
  • reboot with your newly installed system, and follow the installation instructions.

Cluster

If you need clustering do not forget to set your static address in /etc/interfaces, as cluster utilities depend on finding it there.

Miscelleous

  • Proxmox for some weird reason depends on postfix (instead of mail-transport-agent), but I don't see any direct requirement yet. TBD
  • Proxmox suggest ntpd, which is a good idea, but you can survive with chrony just as well.
