6.2. Basic usage

LXC can be used in two distinct ways - privileged, by running the lxc commands as the root user; or unprivileged, by running the lxc commands as a non-root user. (The starting of unprivileged containers by the root user is possible, but not described here.) Unprivileged containers are more limited, for instance being unable to create device nodes or mount block-backed filesystems. However they are less dangerous to the host, as the root userid in the container is mapped to a non-root userid on the host.
