Start lxd container in a console


I have been using lxc (without lxd) containers for years. I am trying to switch to lxd.
what is the equivalent of

lxc-start -F

starting a container in a console with logs.

lxc console --show-log

shows the log (not in real time) and it does not start the live console.

lxc start blah && lxc console blah

Thanks for replaying:

It kind of worked. I missed half of the boot messages from the beginning, but I did get the ubuntu login.
