LXC virtualization driver support in latest Docker releases

Hi,
Is LXC virt. driver still officially supported in Docker?

Is this command:

dockerd -e lxc

actually valid nowadays?

Thanks in advance.

Was dockerd -e lxc ever a valid command? The dockerd has no -e option. docker run has but it has nothing to do with the runtime.

I haven’t heard about anyone using the lxc runtime. Do you really need it or are you just curious?

Sorry, it was a typo…

docker -d -e lxc

Taken from Docker blog.

I’m documenting on Docker, actually.

the blogpost is from “the early days”. It was superseeded by Docker containerd integration - Docker Blog, which made the virtualzation driver obsolete.
