It's a very promising container technology ( ) but it's a pitty it isn't packaged in Fedora. Has someone been able to install and run it on Fedora? if so, how? Thanks a lot

A few weeks ago I created a COPR repository (ganto/lxd) with all the required RPMs for LXD and pylxd. I'm using it on my laptop and a server, so I'll try to keep it up-to-date for the time coming. Here a short introduction for LXD on Fedora.

Feel free to give it a try :-)

LXD 3.0 can be installed with snap

$ sudo snap install lxd
lxd 3.0.0 from 'canonical' installed
$ sudo lxd init

It works for CentOS from what I see on the LXD user mailer list... you might want to post a message there and ask:

Also, there are several Fedora LXD pre-built images availalble to create running containers from including:

fedora 22 fedora 22 i386 fedora 23 fedora 23 i386 fedora 24 fedora 24 i386

I've run a couple of those on my Ubuntu 16.04 host in the past month...

cmd to list all available "images" centos, debian fedora etc is:

lxc image list images:

There's an on-line demo server where you can try out LXD:

Thanks. I'll ask there. My question was about if it was possible to run Fedora as a lxd host
