LXC container on Centos

LXC isn’t a real Virtualization technique, but is more like a chroot environment, but on “steroids”. Its similar to OpenVZ virtualization, but can use your native kernel version. In some cases its very important.

mkdir /var/lib/libvirt/lxc/centos-6-x86_64/etc/yum.repos.d/ -p  
cat /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo |sed s/'$releasever'/6/g > /var/lib/libvirt/lxc/centos-6-x86_64/etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo
yum groupinstall core --installroot=/var/lib/libvirt/lxc/centos-6-x86_64/ --nogpgcheck -y
yum install plymouth libselinux-python --installroot=/var/lib/libvirt/lxc/centos-6-x86_64/ --nogpgcheck -y

You should crate selinux rule:

module lxc 1.0;

require {
type hald_t;
type virtd_lxc_t;
class dbus send_msg;
}

#============= hald_t ==============
allow hald_t virtd_lxc_t:dbus send_msg;

You should create manually your selinux rule to allow virtd_lxc_t to use dbus daemon. How crate custom selinux rules, you can check in other my article there.
