Re: [libvirt-users] Reg: shutdown/restart from within the container(system LXC)



Hi Daniel,
   I checked the latest version (0.9.6) and observed the following from the code.

  * So If a shutdown is issued from the within the container and
    only if that init process within the container terminates,
    the function "lxcPidGone()" in lxcController, takes care of exiting from the while loop.

  Please let me know, if my understanding is correct.

Thanks,
Alphonse

This is a flaw in that version of libvirt. If you upgrade to the
current libvirt it'll work much more reliably.
