eFa4 will now build in LXC Containers! :dance:

Please note the following:

Running eFa4 in an LXC container is less secure than running in a VM or physical machine. eFa4 uses SELinux when it is available and is hardended using mandatory access control. Since you cannot run SELinux inside of an LXC container, you lose the benefit of the additional layer of security that it provides between various parts of eFa.

Some settings may be ignored in an LXC when the LXC is managing them, such as hostname, domainname, DNS entries, IP addresses, etc. Be sure to match your LXC configuration to your desired eFa configuration.

If you are using recursion for DNS in an LXC, make sure you set the DNS to and/or ::1 for the LXC container after configuring eFa and rebooting.
