12.4. Containers Using the libvirt-lxc Tooling Have Been Deprecated

The following libvirt-lxc packages are deprecated since Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1:
  • libvirt-daemon-driver-lxc
  • libvirt-daemon-lxc
  • libvirt-login-shell
Future development on the Linux containers framework is now based on the docker command-line interface. libvirt-lxc tooling may be removed in a future release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (including Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7) and should not be relied upon for developing custom container management applications.
