Strange network behavior when creating toolbox

I’ve got this strange behavior when starting the toolbox on a fresh and upgraded fedora silver blue 30.

  1. type toolbox enter and you get a "toolbox: failed to pull base image fedora-toolbox:30.

  2. try again and while the script is trying to download the image and waiting on the timeout…

  3. While that’s going on my wifi drops. I have to use

     nmcli connection up $sid

I’ve been able to replicate this a few times. Any one else seeing this ?

Not on my setup (I am hardwired, not OTA). But I have seen the toolbox failure before. For that problem you can try this sudo chown -R $USER ~/.local/share/containers/storage/overlay-containers. In the worst case you can delete the ~/.local/share/containers directory entirely then create a new toolbox to enter. sudo rm -r ~/.local/share/containers then toolbox create.

I don’t know if this was actually causing my strange network behavior but I can tell you that I finally figured out what was up. Turns out that during initial install the file /etc/subuid and /etc/subgid are created with a user name and a range listed in the file. If you change your username after install you don’t have the proper entry in this file. I updated the entry with my username and all is well.
subuid should contain:


subguid should contain:
