Build on LXD in Ubuntu 18.04 fails

I followed the instructions at https://docs.snapcraft.io/build-snaps/build-on-lxd-docker. All default options for sudo lxd init. My user is part of the lxd group, and I restarted my computer between running sudo lxd init and the lxc commands. The problem is that lxc exec snapcraft -- snap install snapcraft --classic errors out.

I know that snapcraft is available via the package manager under Ubuntu 16.04+, but I get glibc errors if I build on anything other than 16.04. I would rather use lxc than do a full reinstall to 16.04 just so that I can build my dependencies to be compatible with the 16.04 core used by snap. Is it possible to use a version of Ubuntu other than 16.04 as the base for a snap?

What are my options here? The snap requires webgl, so I can’t use VirtualBox which doesn’t seem to support webgl in Linux guests.

[amiller@amiller-All-Series ~]$ 

Try installing squashfuse in the container, see if that changes things (apt install squashfuse).

I wasn’t sure if I should install squashfuse on the host or in the container, so I tried both and squashfuse successfully installed on the host. The snapcraft snap still fails to install in the container. I’m not sure if this is a problem or not because I can use the Ubuntu 16.04 container to build my application’s libraries, but I will have to call snapcraft from the 17.10 or 18.04 host to do its packaging magic. If this procedure works and doesn’t produce snaps with version-specific bugs in their native libraries then I’ll go with it. It just seems unsafe to not follow the instructions at https://docs.snapcraft.io/build-snaps/build-on-lxd-docker.

To clarify: did you install squashfuse in the container?

No, squashfuse failed to install in the container.

[amiller@amiller-All-Series ~]$    lxc exec snapcraft -- apt install squashfuse

Try an apt update in the container, first. squashfuse needs to be in the container, not the host.

Thanks, that mostly solved my problem. After just running apt update && apt upgrade, the snapcraft snap still failed to install in the container:

I was able to fix this though by then running:

amiller@amiller-MS-7A70:~$ lxc start snapcraft
amiller@amiller-MS-7A70:~$    lxc exec snapcraft -- bash

  Snapcraft is a delightful packaging tool.

Thanks for the help! Now I can update my snap more frequently because I don’t have to boot into an older version of Ubuntu to build.

Ah good, I’m glad you got things working!

Yeah, that happens to me sometimes too, where I need to reboot to get snaps working in a container. I’m not sure if it relates to squashfuse first being installed or what, but it doesn’t seem 100% consistent. @zyga-snapd might have some clues.

I suspect this is still the bug that needs 2.32 deb released to address. I’m sorry we cannot push it faster :frowning:
