I’ve been happily using toolbox to be able to use some Ubuntu-only software (ROS) for uni without dualbooting. I powered up my machine today only to be greeted with my container having apparently completely vanished:
[ash@sylveon ~]$ toolbox run -c pfms sudo /usr/sbin/sshd Error: container pfms not found Use the 'create' command to create a toolbox. Run 'toolbox --help' for usage. [ash@sylveon ~]$ toolbox list IMAGE ID IMAGE NAME CREATED 67016baf940c docker.io/jmennius/ubuntu-toolbox:18.04 6 months ago [ash@sylveon ~]$ podman ps -a CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES
(the image was based on ubuntu 20.04, the 18.04 image is unrelated)
I’m a bit stumped as to what happened. I had spent quite a while getting all the dependencies set up and installed the way they need to be, and in my ignorant bliss I didn’t think to back up the apt package list, so it’d take me quite a while to recreate.
I did find a podman system prune in my shell history - are toolbox containers affected by that? If so, is there any way I can at least see the rootfs to find the apt state?
Any help would be much appreciated!
