== Introduction ==
LXD is a container "hypervisor" designed to provide an easy set of tools to manage Linux containers, and its development is currently being led by employees at Canonical. You can learn more about the project in general at https://linuxcontainers.org/lxd/ . LXD is currently used for container infrastructure for [[Funtoo Containers]].
== Basic Setup on Funtoo ==
The following steps will show you how to set up a basic LXD environment under Funtoo Linux. This environment will set up a bridge called {{c|lxdbr0}} which will be set up via NAT to provide Internet access to your containers. In addition, a default storage pool will be created that will simply use your existing filesystem's storage, creating a directory at {{f|/var/lib/lxd/storage-pools/default}} to store any containers you create. More sophisticated configurations are possible that use dedicated network bridges connected to physical interfaces without NAT, as well as dedicated storage pools that use [[ZFS]] and [[BTRFS]] -- however, these types of configurations are generally overkill for a developer workstation and should only be attempted by advanced users. So we won't cover them here.
