What provides liblxc


Incus sounds interesting. One of the things that appears to behappening is removing ties to Ubuntu. What I was wondering is if liblxc is provided by Canonical? If so, is there a plan to spin your own incuslib or similar? Thanks

liblxc comes from the LXC project which is part of Linux Containers.

It’s the C library which drives all the kernel container features, that project far predates any involvement by Canonical in the container space. Canonical for a time was pretty actively supporting that project by employing @hallyn @brauner and myself, though none of us work for Canonical anymore and none of the other LXC maintainers work for Canonical.
