When I try to set the timezone of a debian container immediately after launching it, I get the error “Failed to connect to bus: No such file or directory”. If I wait a few seconds after launching, then I don’t get the error. Is there a better workaround other than sleeping a constant amount of time?
To reproduce, run this script on an LXD host:
#!/bin/sh lxc launch images:debian/11 time1 lxc exec time1 timedatectl set-timezone Europe/Athens
Creating time1 Starting time1 Failed to connect to bus: No such file or directory
#!/bin/sh lxc launch images:debian/11 time2 sleep 5 lxc exec time2 timedatectl set-timezone Europe/Athens
