Yes, perhaps, although AFAIK we have no timeline for that release currently (if it does occur).
It will still only contain critical bug fixes and so will not contain all of the fixes that the 5.0 LTS series receives.
I’m not certain it will fix it, but there have been a lot of changes to the VM support in the 5.0 series so it would be my first step anyway.
The upgrade to 5.x LTS nearly worked flawlessly however, the network seems to be broken.
Containers work again, however VM’s are running but have no IPv4 and IPv6 but even the IPv6 seems to be affected despite its assigned.
Guess there have been some breaking changes.
Need to look into that.
Please show ip a and ip r from host and inside one of the problem VMs.
Also please show lxc config show <instance> --expanded for one of the VMs as well as lxc network show <network> for the relevant network. Thanks
I checked the syslog again, the same error, however the VM’s are running now.
Regarding the IP’s , for some reason when I tested it, it didn’t really work, now it works nearly instantaneous, so good, but no idea why.
I just reproduced it with Debian 11, following with Debian 10 (cloud images x86, fresh from today), which I thought worked before.
I don’t think this is related to this issue here, that is another issues.
The reason why Is, I used to just let lxd handle the images, so it downloads them on demand from the public mirrors, however this used to suck especially from remote locations such as South Africa, South America. Hence this idea came up again, if these cloud images fetch anything remote, despite have them locally downloaded.
Of course there is internet connectivity, however, the connectivity to Europe, America isn’t good.
Most of the time when I tested, I can get 50-100kb/sec, sometimes more, to the LXD Image servers, hence I store them locally, for a more reliable deployment.
Downloading some images can take up to 60 minutes if I am absolute unlucky.
Hence my question, do the cloud images download anything?
Because this could explain the randomly failed deployments.
I am mainly using the cloud images because of cloud-init to resize the disk before boot etc.
Given the size, I thought they don’t really download anything but I could be wrong.
