Sometimes I think people designing things need to take a step back. One can see the chain of reasoning that results in --directory=/ --volatile=yes actually meaning only /usr being mounted, but on the face of it that’s pretty confusing.
Totally agree. I much prefer just running a rootless container with my container I build semi regularly from puppet.
It ends up being the same as my host, but I can actually change what’s installed without polluting my host distro. I can also choose different distros.
I can see this getting better over time, but this feels like uncanny valley.
Agreed. I also think they need a higher level command or option which encapsulates all of these options. Having an explosion of CLI options like that means it’s too low level and confusing for the user IMO.
This is pretty great. I’ve been playing around with toolbox a bit but this is a other approach that looks exciting.
