       buildah-unshare - Run a command inside of a modified user namespace.


       buildah unshare [options] [--] [command]


       Launches  a  process  (by default, $SHELL) in a new user namespace.  The user namespace is
       configured so that the invoking user's UID and primary GID appear to be UID 0 and  GID  0,
       respectively.   Any  ranges which match that user and group in /etc/subuid and /etc/subgid
       are also mapped in as themselves with  the  help  of  the  newuidmap(1)  and  newgidmap(1)

       buildah  unshare  is  useful  for troubleshooting unprivileged operations and for manually
       clearing storage and other data related to images and containers.

       It is also useful if you want to use the buildah mount command.  If an unprivileged  users
       wants  to  mount  and  work  with  a container, then they need to execute buildah unshare.
       Executing buildah mount fails for unprivileged users unless the user is running  inside  a
       buildah unshare session.


       --mount, -m [VARIABLE=]containerNameOrID

       Mount  the  containerNameOrID  container  while  running  command, and set the environment
       variable VARIABLE to the path of  the  mountpoint.   If  VARIABLE  is  not  specified,  it
       defaults to containerNameOrID, which may not be a valid name for an environment variable.


       buildah unshare id

       buildah unshare pwd

       buildah unshare cat /proc/self/uid_map /proc/self/gid_map

       buildah unshare rm -fr $HOME/.local/share/containers/storage /run/user/`id -u`/run

       buildah unshare --mount containerID sh -c 'cat ${containerID}/etc/os-release'

       If  you  want  to use buildah with a mount command then you can create a script that looks
       something like:

              cat << _EOF
              ctr=$(buildah from scratch)
              mnt=$(buildah mount $ctr)
              dnf -y install --installroot=$mnt PACKAGES
              dnf -y clean all --installroot=$mnt
              buildah config --entrypoint="/bin/PACKAGE" --env "FOO=BAR" $ctr
              buildah commit $ctr imagename
              buildah unmount $ctr

       Then execute it with:

              buildah unshare


       buildah(1),     buildah-mount(1),     namespaces(7),      newuidmap(1),      newgidmap(1),
