Bug Description

Thanks for fixing bug 1567440, with today's version this already is a whole lot easier!

I started from a clean minimal VM today without any lxc/lxd packages installed, apt install lxd, and then ran "sudo lxd init" as suggested by the postinst stdout.

A remaining issue from the debconfery is that the "Do you want to set up an IPv[46] subnet" questions default to "No". I'm not sure about IPv6 (I think it's about time to configure all containers with IPv6), but IMHO pretty much everyone wants to do this, so could this default to "true"?

Hmm, that's odd, I definitely did add logic to pre-select yes in that case :)

I'll take a look at this in a bit.

This bug was fixed in the package lxd - 2.0.0~rc9-0ubuntu4

lxd (2.0.0~rc9-0ubuntu4) xenial; urgency=medium

  * More lxdbr0 tweaks:
    - Fix logic so that on first "dpkg-reconfigure" run, IPv4 and IPv6
      are actually set to "yes". (LP: #1567874)
    - Add an extra check to the IPv4 and IPv6 subnet generators to
      attempt to ping the usual default gateways on the subnet and use another
      subnet if we get an answer.
