LXC support

Post by tomkov » 2019/10/04 11:50:40

Hi,

I am trying to install LXC on CentOs 8 but without success. I have added EPEL repository to the server. Does anyone know if it is possible to install LXC on new Centos8?

Thank you

I guess it is possible build it from sources.
Very pity it is not in epel :-(

I suspect the real answer is that Redhat want you to move off LXC which they no longer support and onto something like podman/docker etc.
CentOS 5 died in March 2017 - migrate NOW!
CentOS 6 goes EOL sooner rather than later, get upgrading!

Definitely podman(/buildah), definitely not docker ;)

Cheers,

There is a Copr repo with packages for EL8 here: https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/ganto/lxc3/

I have used it successfully in the past, though not with CentOS 8.
