Install Docker on CRUX LinuxEstimated reading time: 1 minute
Installing on CRUX Linux can be done using the official contrib ports:
docker port will build and install the latest tagged version of Docker.
Assuming you have contrib enabled, update your ports tree and install docker:
$ sudo prt-get depinst docker
To have a working CRUX+Docker Host you must ensure your Kernel has the necessary modules enabled for the Docker Daemon to function correctly.
Please read the
$ sudo prt-get readme docker
docker port installs the
provided by the Docker contributors for checking your kernel
configuration as a suitable Docker host.
To check your Kernel configuration run:
There is a rc script created for Docker. To start the Docker service:
$ sudo /etc/rc.d/docker start
To start on system boot:
There is a CRUX image as part of the Docker “Official Library” of images.
To use this image simply pull it or use it as part of your
FROM line in
$ docker pull crux $ docker run -i -t crux
There are also user contributed CRUX based image(s) on the Docker Hub.
To uninstall the Docker package:
$ sudo prt-get remove docker
The above command will not remove images, containers, volumes, or user created configuration files on your host. If you wish to delete all images, containers, and volumes run the following command:
$ rm -rf /var/lib/docker
You must delete the user created configuration files manually.
If you have any issues please file a bug with the CRUX Bug Tracker.
