LXC on Slackware Arm?


Does anyone run lxc on Slackware arm? I was wondering if I could get lxc on some small board computer, e.g. Raspberry Pi, using slackware? Slackware in the container of course.

LXC on Slackware Arm?

I build packages on my raspberry pi 4 b in a slackware arm 14.2 lxc container. I prefer that my pi 3 router does not build it's own packages. I wouldn't recommend doing this with anything less than a rpi3 b+. Speed and heat concerns etc.

That sounds to me like your main concerns are managing resources rather than it being painful to install or similar.

I'm thinking about offloading some really light stuff like dnsmasq and perhaps moving the scripts controlling my lights to lxc containers on a Pi or similar. I did think about flashing my router to OpenWRT or similar for dnsmasq etc, but I'm thinking now that as that works and I don't want to mess it up a Pi on the network doing some of the stuff in containers would be a good solution.

LXC on Slackware Arm?

The reason I do not want to build packages on the pi 3 b is because it's my network gateway. It is a fairly minimal installation with hostapd added to it.
