[pve-devel] openvz and signal handlers

Hi list,

Hope someone here has an answer to my problem.

In a perl program I need to apply some basic event handling which I do
by installing a signal handler for ALRM ($SIG{ALRM} = \&alarm_handler;)

This works as intended running in a normal context but running inside a
CT (OpenVZ) context does not work, it is as the signal handler is never

Do I need to do something special to be able to attach to signals
within a CT?
