I am using Fedora-35 Workstation edition. My podman is not working fine. I am able to run commands like podman pull correctly. The Toolbx command toolbox which is based on podman is also working correctly. But when I try to start a bash shell in a container, I am not getting an interactive terminal. The command I am using:
podman run -i -t docker.io/library/ubuntu:latest /bin/bash
I expected to see an interactive bash terminal running inside the container. But podman exits immediately! ? I checked the logs (using journalctl -r | grep podman and I get
$ podman run -ti ubuntu:latest /bin/bash
Resolved "ubuntu" as an alias (/etc/containers/registries.conf.d/000-shortnames.conf)
Trying to pull docker.io/library/ubuntu:latest...

So it’s probably an issue specific to your system. The debug info should help us narrow down what’s causing it.
I tried it yesterday but did not get time to read the debug log carefully to identify the problem. Today, the same command is working fine! I don’t know for sure what has changed. I have installed some updates today, restarted my machine a couple of times. Yesterday I was also doing some terminal kung-fu (chmod, chown etc. to solve some other issue). Maybe I made some mistakes, that got fixed automatically
@qulogic No. I had Toolbx installed for a long time. So podman was also installed as a dependency quite some time back. I only used podman directly on Fedora 35 for the first time when I got the issue.
