LXD/LXC container's config file in Funtoo

Recommended Posts


where configuration file of LXD/LXC containers is store  in Funtoo?

According to google that such files, in some other LINUX distributions, are stored in /var/lib/lxc/container/<container>/config or /container/<container>/config,

but no such file exists in Funtoo.

I'm asking this so I would be able, for example, to change from

lxc.network.type = veth
lxc.network.flags = up
lxc.network.link = br0


lxc.network.type = macvlan
lxc.network.macvlan.mode = bridge
lxc.network.flags = up
lxc.network.link = eth0

Thank you,

so it is vital not to confuse yourself with lxc when using lxd. LXD is using db to store all config stuff and can be edited or displayed with lxc config show <container> (lxc is a command coming from LXD, all LXC commands have a hyphen lxc-ls ...)

if using LXD don't even go to /var/lib/lxc/ :)

/var/lib/lxd is your directory

network is controlled with

lxc network
