I'm trying to figure out how to enable user namespaces capability in my kernel (I think CAP_SYS_USER_NS). I'm using Debian Stretch, kernel 4.6.0-1-amd64.
My assumption is there is a way to turn on user namespaces and recompile the kernel. After some hours searching, I can find a post of doing this in Ubuntu (https://blog.tutum.co/2013/12/14/enabling-the-user-namespace-in-ubuntu-13-10-saucy/) but not Debian (problem may be I'm on the wrong track and so my searches are off base).
My end game is to enable these in order to keep up with Docker and Google sandboxing which apparently require user namespaces to be enabled in the kernel (e.g., my Chrome containers no longer work).
