Latest version of lxc


(Phil Howard) #1

what is the latest version of lxc? what is the latest version of lxc for Ubuntu Xenial (16.04) LTS? how old is version 2.0.8? for an installation of lxc (instead of lxd) on Ubuntu Xenial do i need any more packages besides “lxc” (in the Ubuntu Xenial repository)? i’ve found 23 possible packages with string “lxc” in their names.

3.0.2 is the latest version of LXC, Xenial is on the 2.0 branch currently at 2.0.8 (though 2.0.9 has been released upstream we’re planning on skipping it and going to 2.0.10 once that’s out).

You can get 3.0 on Xenial by installing from xenial-backports (currently has 3.0.1, soon to get 3.0.2).

To install 2.0 on a clean system:

  • apt install lxc

To install 3.0 on a clean system:

  • apt install -t xenial-backports lxc
