Differences between lxc-templates and lxc-create -t download -n

Hi guys,

I started to create cointainers from templates, they allowed me to install debian but I didn’t choose the version!

I found the “feature”:

lxc-create -t download -n container_name

and by this way I can choose distro, version and architecture so… I think this is the best way to create a container! :slight_smile:


Yes, the download template downloads prebuilt LXC/LXD images from https://images.linuxcontainers.org

Whereas the other lxc templates actually build the images locally by downloading the upstream packages directly.
