I have a follow up questions but to start lxc containers is basically just an extension of the host/ server. Right?
im trying to understand this i dont know why i can not just install an application in a container but if i use a helper script i have less issues.
main one im working on is handbreak my helper script has it running good except i dont know how to get my files in and out of it. i have gotten an cifs share mounted but still can not see it in handbreak cli.
now when i try to install handbreak in debian12 lxc i can not updaate anything or install anything
your are free to pick any one of these to help me get thru this.
i think that lxc seems more direct control and docker has kind of its own "kernel" being in the middle of all this.
Thank you.

Hi,
regarding the update issue, please check that your LXC is configured to use the correct DNS server and default gateway in order to connect to the internet. You can adapt these in the network settings of the LXC for your virtual network card.

Regarding your cifs share: Where did you mount the share? Inside the LXC or on the host? The recommended way is to mount the share on the host and bind-mount it to the containers filesystem.
Please find details regarding bind mounts here: https://pve.proxmox.com/pve-docs/pve-admin-guide.html#_bind_mount_points

gee golly yes i dont know how i missed that before.
i did not have the lxc ip adress in the right spot and so no gateway and there was no set ip address updating fine now.
