A simple validation test case for Podman on Fedora IoT Edition.


This testcase can be run on either an image or installation, on hardware or in virtualization.

to optionally test unprivilaged (rootless) podman, install slirp4netns for network namespaces with

  rpm-ostree install --reboot slirp4netns

How to test

Boot image or Installation and log in locally or SSH into booted image.

Check if podman is installed

 rpm -q podman

Check to see if you can pull an image from the registry

sudo podman pull fedora

Run hello-world to test.

sudo podman run -it fedora echo Hello-World

Create a container from Dockerfile

For this test you can use a Dockerfile of your own or use this basic example below:

cat << EOF >> Dockerfile
FROM fedora:latest
RUN /usr/bin/dnf install -y httpd
ENTRYPOINT ["/usr/sbin/httpd"]

Build an image

sudo podman build -t f29-httpd $(pwd)

Verify the image

sudo podman images

Run the container

sudo podman run -d -p 80:80 localhost/f29-httpd

Verify the container is running

sudo podman container ls

Test apache is working, this should display the Test page html.

curl http://localhost/

Open a web browser on another computer and enter the IP address to test the page is visible.
