Is it possible to create Ubuntu v18 container in ubuntu v14

Hi, I’m thinking is it is it possible to create Ubuntu v18 container in Ubuntu v14.

If there is different between kernel versions, how Ubuntu’s v14 kernel can handle Ubuntu’s v18 container executions?

Can there be some serious changes in Kernel so that will cause an issue which I mentioned?

Thanks, Nairi

This works just fine. Linux does a very good job of providing compatible binary APIs for userspace applications. Have you run into a specific issue you’d like to troubleshoot?
