git ref 2.1.r255.g4ebc3cb builds ok if check() is disabled (unless you have the various gpg keys installed)

  • NB: this latest version is needed to build the latest templates which have switched to using build-incus (not build-lxd) - i.e the new LXD fork - incus

  • To use --import-into-incus you also need to ln -s /var/lib/lxd /var/lib/incus as the unix.socket is needed to import an image into lxd.

  • for building custom containers see distrobuilder-menu - now also available in AUR which now creates the above LXD compatibility symlink
