Running Kolab inside an LXC Container

LXC Containers

LXC containers (“chroots on steroids”) need /dev/shm/ mounted read/write for user accounts.

The permissions on /dev/shm/ need to be as follows:

   # ls -ld /dev/shm/
   drwxrwxrwt 2 root root        40 2012-11-20 20:34 shm

To make sure the permissions are correct even after a reboot, make sure /etc/fstab contains a line similar to the following:

   none /dev/shm tmpfs rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec 0 0

Note that alongside /dev/shm problems, resolving hostnames (especially localhost to, or inversely, to localhost) have also been reported.
