Introduction to Usermode

User-Mode Linux is a safe, secure way of running Linux versions and Linux processes. Run buggy software, experiment with new Linux kernels or distributions, and poke around in the internals of Linux, all without risking your main Linux setup.

Extracting the RPM

An extracted package can be downloaded from: http://cross-lfs.org/~jciccone/usermode-1.87.tar.gz

Make sure that you have rpm2cpio and Cpio installed. This is not the only way to extract the tarball. If you know of a better way that has almost no dependencies, By all means add it.

rpm2cpio usermode-1.87-3.src.rpm | cpio -d -i

The above command will create 2 files. usermode-1.87.tar.gz and usermode.spec. It is safe to delete usermode.spec
