Linux Container (lxc) setup

asked 2013-05-01 07:06:13 -0500

Is anybody able to setup a Linux Container on a current Fedora release?

For me, the include template fails on Rawhide because the package name of fedora-release is not detected. Anyway, when running the template directly with the right option, the rootfs is created.

[root@work04 fedora18]# cd /usr/share/lxc/templates/
[root@work04 templates]# ./lxc-fedora -R 18 -n fedora

Some warnings like the one below shows up (but it seems that the container creation is finishing):

warning: Failed to read auxiliary vector, /proc not mounted?

I ignore those warning and want to start the container with:

[root@work04 lxc]# lxc-start -n fedora

This doesn't work. Meaning that my gnome session get terminated and gdm present me the login dialog.

$ lxc-version
