Re: [ezjail] use ezjail to administrate different freebsd releases on the same host

According to Hans Allis:
> Your question has more to do with the FreeBSD jail functionality in general. As jails are very lightweight, they share the kernel with the host system. It’s therefore not recommended (although it might work partially in practice) to use a version X user land together with a version Y kernel.

Most of the time, running kernel N and having a jail with M with N > M is possible (i.e. 9.2 jail on 10 host).  The reverse is not true of course (may sometimes works). For example, you can not use poudriere to compile 10 packages on 9.2.
