    Anyone know of any basic frontends for LXC that don't run as a web-based service? I don't need pretty - just a bit more idiot-proof and quicker than the CLI is... I just don't want it running 24/7 to only be used every few months.

    It does support LXC as well as OpenVZ, but not Linux-Vserver. Vendor support does vary, though. Under newer releases of Debian, libvirtd supports LXC, Vbox, Xen, and Qemu (KVM).

    Hmm. When I tried the Ubuntu packaged version yesterday, it looked to only support qemu. It had nothing else in ANY of the menus.
    Just tried it again (reinstalled it) and piles of options showed up... Either I derped out yesterday, or rebooting after installing LXC and libvirt and all that made more bits show up.
    Good to know it's what everyone else is using too :)

    Restarting libvirtd should be your final step after making changes in your host environment.
