Getting started with docker
This page deals with using Fedora to run Docker containers.
Using Docker on Fedora
Installing and Configuring Docker on Fedora
- 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
Installing Docker packages
First off we need get the docker
$ sudo yum install docker
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.
