Initiated by Deepgeek, this series contains contributions from many hosts on the topic of Virtualization

I used to use Vagrant to spin up minimal virtual machines when I needed to test code on a different distro than what I ran. Lately I've switched to Podman.

Install Podman with your distribution's package manager.

Configure it:

$ sudo --add-subuids 200000-265536 \
--add-subgids 200000-265536 \

Create a directory to share data between your container and your localhost:

$ mkdir data

Run a container, with your ./data directory mapped to /storage in the container:

$ podman run -it --volume ./data:/storage:Z busybox
