Are you looking for a Debian/slink "virtual" machine that could be run
on your 2.2.15 (and over) main linux box ?
Where you could have root privilege on a non root account ?
Are you tired of booting floppies to test new LEAF packages ?
Here is the answer: user-mode-linux
Basically your run linux within linux. A great job from Jeff Dike.
Here is my piece for my fellow LEAF/LRP developpers ands users:
Could also be useful to uml-user list afficionados ?

I'm trying to get multiple VMs on the same machine talking with one
another over ipv6, and am having
some trouble. Using the tuntap transport, I can bring up and configure a
ipv6 interface, ping the
interface, and ping the host's ipv6 address on the tap. However, when I
do the same on a second
VM, they can't talk to each other; ping6 fails with host unreachables
from ::1. When I specify the
interface with ping6 -I eth0, ping6 complains that IPv6 is not enabled
on that device. Any advice
on how to get this working?
On somewhat of a side note, I first tried this with the daemon and mcast
transports. I could configure
the interface, but ping6 was always failing with "cannot assign
requested address". Checking the
logs showed that a duplicate address was being detected when I brought
the interface up. I'm
a bit rusty on ipv6 neighbor discovery, but perhaps the daemon and mcast
transports are routing
the neighbor discovery request back to VM's stack in such a way that it
thinks there's a duplicate
Thanks for any and all help; I'm using linux/UML 2.4.15.
