podman-machine-os-apply - Man Page

Apply an OCI image to a Podman Machine's OS

Synopsis

podman machine os apply [options] image [vm]

Description

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 distribution (Fedora CoreOS).

For more information, see the rpm-ostree documentation.

The default machine name is podman-machine-default. If a machine name is not specified as an argument, then the OS changes will be applied to podman-machine-default.

Options

--help

Print usage statement.

--restart

Restart VM after applying changes.

Examples

Update the default Podman machine to the specified bootable OCI image.

$ podman machine os apply quay.io/podman_next

Update the specified Podman machine to the specified bootable OCI image.

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