Yes, it works with 

<Plugin perl>
         BaseName "Collectd::Plugin"
#        LoadPlugin OpenVZ

It works also.

Ok! I see a real problem possible...

# collectd  -f
option = FQDNLookup; value = true;
type = syslog
file = /usr/lib64/collectd/syslog.so
No DB::DB routine defined at -e line 1.
No DB::DB routine defined at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/Collectd.pm line 171.

I use perl-base-5.8.8-alt14 (Altlinux branch 4.0, x86_64). I found some
problem with Perl 5.8/x86_64/"No DB::DB routine defined" in Google. I will
try to test it on i586.

4.9.1 pre-compiled, 4.10.1 compiled by me.

Ok. I understand.
