podman-machine-os-apply - Man Page

Apply an OCI image to a Podman Machine's OS


podman machine os apply [options] image [vm]


Apply machine OS changes from an OCI image.

VM's that use OS's that use rpm-ostreee have the capability to rebase itself from the content of an OCI image. podman machine image apply takes an OCI image with container native ostree functionality and rebases itself on that image.

By default, Podman machines on Mac and Linux use an rpm-ostree based distrubition (Fedora CoreOS).

For more information, please see the rpm-ostree docs.



Print usage statement.


Restart VM after applying changes.


$ podman machine os apply quay.io/podman_next
$ podman machine os apply quay.io/podman_next podman-machine-defualt
