I successfully created a privileged lxc archlinux container on an archlinux host with lxc. I set up a static ip via dnsmasq and ssh into it and I use xauth to forward X11. I then call programs like mupdf or plot functions from programming languages such as R or Matlab. While this all works fine I constantly see error messages printed to the console when I open a *.pdf file with mupdf:

     ximage: disabling shared memory extension: BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)

Two short questions about this:

  1. What exactly does this error message mean?
  2. How can this error be solved (or is it safe to ignore)?
