Pinned topic Docker ?

‏2014-07-15T11:20:58Z |

Hi,

Is Docker (lightweight containers) available on any of the POWER Linux distro's ?

If not are there plans for it to be made available on ppc   RHEL/Ubuntu ?

Thanks

    It doesn't seem to be possible at the moment.

    docker can't be compiled with gccgo, there are some issues with that

    Dinar, you are correct.  We have folks working on these patches right now. 

    Andy, docker is on our list of environments we need to support and that support will be first visible in our community distributions like openSUSE and Fedora.  What usecases do you have?

    BTW, I should mention that containers are supported on Power, just not the abstraction of containers over the "basic kernel" using all of the Docker tooling.

    These are the best way to install docker on your Ubuntu on POWER:

     

    1. Install Docker repository in Ubuntu:
    2. Update the archive index
      • # sudo apt-get update
        
    3. Install the docker package
      • # apt-get install docker.io
