Last modified: 2013-12-13 22:26:54 EST
Description of problem:
lxc-templates package usually contains templates such as lxc-fedora to make it easy to configure OS containers. Fedora doesn't have any of these although the package exists.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : lxc-templates
Arch : i686
Version : 0.7.5
Release : 1.fc17
Size : 4.0 k
*** Bug 909924 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Could you add some templates ?
You can find an srpm which include them here : http://www.metal3d.org/rpms/
Same problem in Fedora 18.
About the package:
Version : 0.7.5
Révision : 2.fc18
It containe only a template for a LXCed SSHD.
lxc-0.8.0-2.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
lxc-0.8.0-2.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 17 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing lxc-0.8.0-2.fc17'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
After update the package lxc-templates to lxc-0.8.0-2.fc18, I lost the folder /etc/lib64/templates
Sorry to hear that. However, the templates are in /usr/share/lxc/templates/, and as fare as I can see, they never have been in /etc/lib64/templates for the Fedora package.
Good news that there are LXC templates now. However the lxc-fedora template has a couple of issues in a F18 host:
I have tried to create a F15 container but I get the following errors:

Sorry, but we can/do not (and neither does upstream) support EOL'ed Fedora releases.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
