Why is LXC mentioned?

Hi, you are the original author of Cross Container Support Project. I managed to set up a chroot environment on my laptop (x86_64) in which I can emerge packages for ARM. The packages work on my raspberry pi. But I did not understand what the purpose of the lxc is. Can you please detail on this? — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Yminus (talkcontribs) 12:57, October 11, 2015‎

I also asked this question on Talk:Cross Container Support Project.

I believe LXC is to simply offer an alternative to the chroot environment. Showing the binfmt handles are useful for containers as well as chroots. --Maffblaster (talk) 21:53, 15 February 2022 (UTC)
