toolbox-enter - Man Page

Enter a toolbox container for interactive use

Synopsis

toolbox enter [--distro DISTRO | -d DISTRO]
             [--release RELEASE | -r RELEASE]
             [CONTAINER]

Description

Spawns an interactive shell inside a toolbox container that was created using the toolbox create command. It tries to spawn the user's default shell, but if it's not available inside the container then it falls back to /bin/bash.

When invoked without any options, toolbox enter will try to enter the default toolbox container for the host, or if there's only one container available then it will use it. On Fedora, the default container is known as fedora-toolbox-N, where N is the release of the host. If there aren't any containers, toolbox enter will offer to create the default one for you.

A specific container can be selected using the CONTAINER argument.

A toolbox container is an OCI container. Therefore, toolbox enter is analogous to a podman start followed by a podman exec.

Options

The following options are understood:

--distro
DISTRO, -d DISTRO

Enter a toolbox container for a different operating system DISTRO than the host.

--release
RELEASE, -r RELEASE

Enter a toolbox container for a different operating system RELEASE than the host.

Examples

Enter a toolbox container using the default image matching the host OS

$ toolbox enter

Enter a toolbox container using the default image for Fedora 30

$ toolbox enter --distro fedora --release f30

Enter a custom toolbox container using a custom image

$ toolbox enter foo
