Switch from kernel 4.9.0-4-amd64 to 4.14.0-0.bpo.2-amd64


(Ralf Grabow) #1

System is debian stretch.

I have got this message after switching kernel from 4.9.0-4-amd64 to 4.14.0-0.bpo.2-amd64:

lxc-start: cgroups/cgfsng.c: create_path_for_hierarchy: 1306 Path “/sys/fs/cgroup/systemd//lxc/lxc_admin” already existed.
lxc-start: cgroups/cgfsng.c: cgfsng_create: 1363 No such file or directory - Failed to create /sys/fs/cgroup/systemd//lxc/lxc_admin: No such file or directory

In an similar post is a discussion about uid and gid:

When I switch back, all run fine.

What can i do?


(Stéphane Graber) #2

@brauner any ideas?

@rag57 what LXC version is that?


(Ralf Grabow) #3

Paket: lxc
Version: 1:2.0.7-2+deb9u1


(Christian Brauner) #4

The cgroup errors are very likely a red herring. I rather suspect that this is the upstream AppArmor bug that got introduced in the 4.14 kernel. Basically the mount mediation checks are wrong in 4.14. But there’s a commit fixing this upstream https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=5b9f57cf47b87f07210875d6a24776b4496b818d
but it’ll only be released in 4.15. Debian might decide to backport it to 4.14 though not sure. It should qualify as a bugfix.

In any case, I’d need to see the full trace log for the container. With lxd this should be doable when starting the daemon with lxd --debug --group lxd and then giving me the logs under /var/log/lxd/<container-name>/lxc.log. For liblxc it would be lxc-start -n <container-name> -l trace -o <container-name>.log and appending/copying <container-name>.log here.

It seems you can’t mount the rootfs which makes AppArmor more likely. Anything suspicious in the dmesg output when starting one of those containers?

(Christian Brauner) #9

Right, this is as I expected. This is the AppArmor bug in 4.14. which is fixed by https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=5b9f57cf47b87f07210875d6a24776b4496b818d
which will be in 4.15. So this is not liblxc’s fault. :slight_smile:


(Ralf Grabow) #10

kernel 4.14.0-0.bpo.3-amd64 works
