LXC does not support Fedora 15


changed title from "LXC crashes KDE (f15 x86_64)" to "LXC does not support Fedora 15"


Did anybody successfully run and test LXC on f15?

I am not a virtualization expert, but have successfully run KVM on f15 and openvz on centos 6 (vswap enabled kernel), so not a total beginner either :-)

I am very interested in LXC, since it seems lightweight and doesn't require a custom kernel. Unfortunately have not been able to run lxc containers successfully (e.g. with centos 6 as we guest). Here is what I tried.

I basically followed all installations correctly. To lazy to write them down here, but it is essentially the same as


But in the end I got the following error message:

lxc-start: no configuration file for '/sbin/init' (may crash the host)
I figure that this problem makes sense, because f15 uses systemd now.

So I just tried the following (without any expectation it would work actually)

lxc-start -n www1 -l DEBUG /bin/systemd
and get

Failed to set SELinux file context on /dev/stdin stdout etc
Interestingly after this, when I hit RETURN KDE crashes, I am logged out and I have to login again. I also tried to close the xterm windows before hitting RETURN, but same result. I can reproduce this 100%. This is probably a bug?

My other question is, did anybody successfully configure and run LXC on f15? If yes, how did you start the container?

I also compiled the latest lxc version 0.75 in the end (and setenforce 0).

Thanks for viewing this post!

Re: LXC crashes KDE (f15 x86_64)

Unfortunately after reading the LXC mailings list, I came to the conclusion, that LXC doesn't support Fedora 15 (systemd) yet. Probably will take some time, hopefully for Fedora 17.

I'm trying to get LXC working under Fedora 16.

Here is my forum thread of progress

No go yet, but working on it.
