distrobox stop distrobox-stop

Examples (TL;DR)

Description

distrobox-stop stop a running distrobox.

Distroboxes are left running, even after exiting out of them, so that subsequent enters are really quick. This is how they can be stopped.

Synopsis

distrobox stop

--all/-a:       stop all distroboxes
--yes/-Y:       non-interactive, stop without asking
--help/-h:      show this message
--root/-r:      launch podman/docker/lilipod with root privileges. Note that if you need root this is the preferred
            way over "sudo distrobox" (note: if using a program other than 'sudo' for root privileges is necessary,
            specify it through the DBX_SUDO_PROGRAM env variable, or 'distrobox_sudo_program' config variable)
--verbose/-v:       show more verbosity
--version/-V:       show version

distrobox-stop container-name1 container-name2
