I didn’t find an immediate answer to this question and wondered about this for a long time now.
Why the decision to only publish snap packages? With deb packages I never had a problem but snap, where do I begin …
- Auto updates break the systems on a regular basis
- Where are the logs found again?
- $HOME not in /home/$USER … (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
Not that it was my decision to change this, but if you are lucky enough to get a company supported linux env, those are the things you have to deal with.
- As lxd uses a global database downgrades are not possible anyway, so no need to use multiple versions
My point is, I to use lxd and it’s a fantastic piece of work. However, snap sometimes makes it barely usable.
I know there are some deb packaging efforts going on: https://github.com/el-eks-di/lxd-deb
But why not again an official deb package?
