Anybody know how to install LXD on CentOS 7.5 1804 using snap? I’ve used my google-fu and found an excellent post by Stephane Graber at, but when I try to use the sudo yum install snapd command he gives, the repo that is pointed to doesn’t have snap! Here’s a link to his post- ... s-7/1250/5
I would appreciate any commentary on this subject.

I solved my own problem here. The instructions Stephane Graber gave on the posted link are exactly correct, I redid them today and installed snap as superuser( as perhaps stipulated in Mr. Grabers instructions). All commands worked perfectly, I had to disable packagekit and also disabled selinux. Did the ZFS commands as well, and created a zpool on another disk drive for the LXD storage backend. Bravo LXD and CentOS7.5!
