i’m going to go ahead and go with LXD instead of LXC. i have wanted to also experiment at times at a lower level but have decided i don’t need LXC to do that. i will just be doing kernel syscalls. and not at the same time as with LXD. what i need to know now is exactly what packages to install on Ubuntu Xenial 16.04.5 LTS and directions to an appropriate “getting started making your first container” guide (please, not a video … i want to highlight-and-paste).
fyi, i made a container with the unshare command on an EC2 c5.large instance and built my LIBH library in it. no real biggie as i have done that in plain-ole chroot.
