Has anyone tried to run LXD on the Windows 10 Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) bash?
LXD comes with the latest Ubuntu version (18.04) that windows loads up, but I cannot get the
LXD daemon to run. It is failing to start. I tried the following:
$ sudo systemctl enable lxd.service
…and get this:
Starting Container hypervisor based on LXC: lxd.
Error: LXD still not running after 600s timeout (Get http://unix.socket/1.0: dial unix /var/lib/lxd/unix.socket: connect: no such file or directory)
And sure enough, it’s not lying…no unix.socket file to be found anywhere!
So is the Win 10 WSL too crippled to work? You would think if they include the LXD/LXC software in their bionic build, it should work…right?
I would really like to see this work as I am working on a container based feature that would be great
on a Windows box.
I did post this to the Microsoft/WSL github issues…
