Hi,

I just tried to create ubuntu lxc container:

> lxc-create -l DEBUG -o lxc-log -n trusty -t ubuntu -B lvm --vgname vg0 -- -d

and got this in log:

> lxc-create 1414851260.358 ERROR    bdev - Error creating filesystem type ext3 on /dev/vg0/trusty

Checking with lxc sources I saw that lxc tried to use mkfs and I don't 
have it. I don't find a package which would contain mkfs. Is there one 
or is this a compatibility problem?

I got forward by making a symlink mkfs->mke2fs

mkfs is part of util-linux. I remember we discussed this before on IRC to
create a subpkg for lxc like lxc-lvm which would have util-linux in depends.

Ah, thanks!

Is there a way to search for a program or file in not-yet-installed
packages?

That certainly sounds like a good idea.

No not yet, also this has been discussed before. For now I always use
http://packages.ubuntu.com to search for files.

I just checked git, and if you run 3.x or edge, lxc-lvm should already be
available.

Great advice, thankyou! I have not realized that tool even though I have
used Ubuntu quite a while.

I suppose that you use the tool to get only hints about possible
packages, though. I imagine that the relationship between Alpine and
Ubuntu packages can't be strictly 1 to 1. Do developers intentionally
follow Ubuntu packaging to some extent?

Goog to know, thanks.
