It's Not Our Fault

So I was setting up LXD on Akai and discovered that you get what you pay for.

Although the server itself is fast, downloading images to install virtual servers was dead slow.  About 1MB per second.  Grumble grumble.  But at least once downloaded they're cached and refreshed automatically, so I don't need to care.

Then I discovered that the contributed images repo wouldn't respond at all.  Wouldn't even give a listing, much less download an image.


Doing some quick Googling about the images repo I notice this question: Are you running IPv6?

I was indeed running IPv6.

Now I'm not.

And things are working perfectly.

Thanks, IPv6.  Thanks a lot.

Image downloads are around 10MB per second now - not super fast but fast enough - and launching a container takes around four seconds, exactly what I'd expect for that CPU.

Also, systemd-resolv is the stupidest thing I've ever seen.

Update: Can create containers but not VMs.  Apparently this is a known issue relating to the QEMU version with current LXD.  I specifically uninstalled the stable branch to run the current branch, and I got bit.

1 "Are you running IPv6?"
IPv6 has been around forever and we're still seeing this kind of problem.  Wonderful.

Anyone who lets Pöttering design, build, or write anything deserves what happens to them.

3 systemd developer comment on an annoying bug that's been open for five years now: "Well, we keep telling you why, and you keep asking."

"We know what's best for you, stop telling us that we've broken basic functionality!"

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
