Migrating virtualbox image to LXC
 
Hi

Is there a way to migrate a virtualbox image to a LXC containter environment.

I can easly extract a tar of the virtualbox VM's file system.

I'm kind of hoping there's a way to create an 'empty' container then untar the virtualbox VM's file system into it. Etc etc.

I am completely new to LXC but if anyone can layout the steps I'll lookup any details.

Thanks in advance.

For those who might be wondering:

The following article covers booting a raw image as a container.
I'm afraid it's only relevant if you are using raw images with for your VM's. It perfect for my situation as we only use raw images with virtualbox.
