How to install devuan lxc-container on debian?

Hello!
I try to migrate things to Devuan and so, even on Debian (Bullseye), I start new things with Devuan.
So I came to lxc-setup and here starts a problem:

lxc-create devu5-ct1 --bdev zfs --zfsroot=zfspool/lxc -t devuan -- -r daedalus

which fails miserably:

debootstrap is /usr/sbin/debootstrap

lxc-create: devu5-ct1: tools/lxc_create.c: main: 319 Failed to create container devu5-ct1

I know (only "in the dust") that one can specify an URL at the end of the command, but
would not know, which that might be! The tipping point is probably this:

E: No such script: /usr/share/debootstrap/scripts/daedalus

Every tips is welcome!
BTW, astoundingly, in the cover of lxc-create, devuan signing keys were properly importet.
(I always export a http-proxy for lxc-setup). This is not the case for a chroot setup (tried
to install devuan in a chroot -- failed, because gpg "does not understand proxy" ....).
Regards,
Manfred

Re: How to install devuan lxc-container on debian?

I don't know about lxc, so I don't know where you need to install the keyring, but here's the devuan-keyring package for daedalus -
https://pkgmaster.devuan.org/devuan/poo … 28_all.deb

The debootstrap error is easier - as root

cd /usr/share/debootstrap
ln -s ceres daedalus

I'm not sure if you need to install devuan's debootstrap. That's here -
https://pkgmaster.devuan.org/devuan/poo … n2_all.deb

You need to use Devuan's debootstrap (not Debian's).

Hi!

You need to use Devuan's debootstrap (not Debian's).

LXC is not debootstrap and is intended to install containers for
different OS, like Ubuntu, Arch etc.
Thanks to @fsmithred's:

ln -s ceres daedalus

it works like a charm now (at least setup, not configured and runned it).
So the messages about "NN signatures not checked due to missing keys"
may be a conseqence of the missing reference.

Anyway, regards,
Manfred
