13:35 paulisp I need some help with LXC. I am trying to run X on an LXC container (as shown at http://mraw.org/blog/2011/04/05/Running_X_from_LXC/ ). However, when I `startx`, mouse and keyboard are unresponsive, even to change to a different tty. The graphics show up, but "no one's home" it seems. Are there any container experts out there that can help me out?
13:39 pdurbin hmm, maybe prologic or codex or hydrajump knows. or others :)
13:43 paulisp codex: thoughts?
13:43 paulisp prologic: thoughts?
13:43 paulisp hydrajump: any ideas?
13:45 pdurbin paulisp: you might need to wait for some of them to wake up :)
13:45 paulisp lol sorry
13:45 pdurbin maybe write up your problem at http://serverfault.com and link to it
13:47 paulisp link: http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/191289/docker-how-to-run-x-desktop-in-a-container
13:48 pdurbin or there. very good

17:04 hydrajump paulisp: hi I know you mentioned you're using LXC, but here are lots of examples how to do it with docker if you want to try https://blog.jessfraz.com/posts/docker-containers-on-the-desktop.html
17:07 paulisp is it running its own X server?
17:08 paulisp ah, you're forwarding X. See, I'm trying to have the host not even run its own X server, offloading everything to the guest.
17:09 paulisp And, so far, everything but the keyboard appears to work
17:11 paulisp hydrajump: I do appreciate the examples, though!
17:20 paulisp hydrajump: It may even seem like a self-licking ice cream cone, but I planned on running these types of docker containers inside an LXC container. Similar to docker --privilege, but I figured that LXC is more for what I'm trying to do.

18:02 pdurbin paulisp: are you saying the answer is at http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/18003/linux-lxc-deploying-images-with-tiniest-possible-x11 ?
18:25 paulisp yes

18:25 pdurbin paulisp: sure. are you going to add an answer to http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/191289/docker-how-to-run-x-desktop-in-a-container ?
18:26 paulisp pdurbin: Yes. I plan on doing a clean write-up over the next hour.
