Oh, that's pretty cool. I didn't know about capabilities. Nice that they added an option to use it with systemd-nspawn.

This is probably not equivalent, but similar -

In the chroot, install firejail, then run (as user)
Code: Select all
firejail --seccomp Xephyr :1 -screen 1024x768 -resizeable & sleep 2 ; icewm --display=:1


I'm really hoping someone will come along and explain how to use lxc in a few easy steps, so I don't have to figure it out.

Unfortunately, LXC is a complex beastie :?

The Debian wiki guide is pretty good:
https://wiki.debian.org/LXC

However, it lacks instructions for use on a laptop with a wireless connection; for that, see the ArchWiki:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Li ... ss_network

My favorite LXC guides are this series:
https://www.stgraber.org/2013/12/20/lxc ... st-series/

These include the unprivileged container guide I linked to above and a section on running X applications from an LXC container.

Hi guys this topic is supercool, I am one of those systemd haters :mrgreen: anyway we must use it untill debian decides to change for something else (sheppard init?).

I found this two links from the DebConf I hope can be useful for you:

If you can't fork then hold you in silence.
