[edit] System Requirements

  • Docker can run only on 64 bit systems (for now, at least).
  • Fedora 19 and onwards are supported.
  • Kernel version 3.8 and above are supported. 3.2 to 3.5 are known to be unstable with docker

[edit] Installing Docker packages

First off we need to get rid of docker package which is known to conflict as per this bug

$ sudo yum -y remove docker
$ sudo yum -y install docker-io

To start the docker service use systemctl:

$ sudo systemctl start docker

To make sure the docker service remains enabled across reboots:

$ sudo systemctl enable docker

We can launch a Docker running Fedora image by doing the following:

$ sudo docker run -i -t fedora /bin/bash

The command above will download the Fedora image from Docker public repos and run it.
