Yes, I have built a kernel and ported Docker 1.0 to the Raspbian OS: Linux raspberrypi 3.10.37+ #1 PREEMPT Sat Apr 19 13:28:05 UTC 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux
I have shared my outputs on GitHub to save others the pain. As is usual I have provided this 'as-is' with no warranty ;-)
You can find the kernel & docker tar file here:
You can also use HypriotOS, which provides the latest Docker and Linux kernel for Raspberry Pi. Just flash the image and see Docker up and running!
(disclosure: I am a team member of Hypriot)
Docker on the Pi is always going to have limitations based on the hardware specs (processor, memory etc.) of the Pi, but I can think of a couple of reasons people would want to install Docker on a Pi:
developing docker for the Pi
evaluating new software
testing experimental code,
architecture design (microservices, separation of ...
Here is a stripped down Dockerfile that runs R 3.5 for a Raspberry Pi 3 B+:
# parent image
# enable systemd
ENV INITSYSTEM on
# update sources
RUN echo "deb http://mirrordirector.raspbian.org/raspbian/ buster main" > /etc/apt/sources.list
# install R
RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y \...
If you use Raspbian:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get install docker.io docker
Docker is now in the default repository,
Update: unfortunately this version is quite old, so pulling in images from Docker Hub won't work at the moment.
This is a futile endeavour. The System requirements for Document Server include:
CPU: dual core 2 GHz or better → while Raspberry Pi 2 & 3 have quad-core processors, they're ~ 1 GHz ARM quad core. Server spec software usually assumes Intel power per core
RAM: 2 GB or more → the most RAM that a Raspberry Pi supports is 1 GB
OS: 64-bit Debian, Ubuntu or ...
Docker supports ARMv6/v7 and even ARM64 (v8?), so you can run it on your Raspberry Pis.
Follow the official instructions from Docker here: https://docs.docker.com/engine/installation/linux/docker-ce/debian/
If you have Raspbian Jessie or Stretch (check the above documentation for others), this would be:
$ sudo apt-get install apt-transport-https ca-...
Please note a previous version of this answer recommended installing version 18.06.1 of docker-ce however this version does not include the patch for the runc CVE that allowed for container escape as pointed out in the thread. Versions 18.06.2 and 18.06.3 both reportedly work and are not vulnerable to CVE-2019-5736. Commands below have been updated ...
wpa_supplicant will not be running in the container unless you start it.
A major difference between docker containers and a normal environment is that there are no system services running in the container unless you run it with init or systemd as the base command, since it is init (systemd is an init implementation) that manages these.
Containers are ...
One needs to run the right architecture.
The kernel on my raspberry pi zero W is armv6l
Whatever mechanism docker have to select the right arch is not solid enough.
For instance alpine:latest have images for
But docker image inspect shows both arm/v6 and arm/v7 as ...
I have always used...
curl -sSL https://get.docker.com | sh && sudo usermod -aG docker pi
However, I just saw a deprecation notice this morning...
WARNING: raspbian is no longer updated @ https://get.docker.com/
Installing the legacy docker-engine package...
The current Docker hub does not yet support multiple architecture for an image. So the image you are trying to pull when doing docker pull nginx is the x86_64 one and it won't run on Raspberry Pi.
Update: Docker has now multiarch support. So many images now can be pulled on both x86_64 and armhf (e.g. docker pull debian will work on your desktop/laptop ...
I think Steve missed a few points of what containers are useful for. :-) no offense Steve! ;-)
Running Docker (or LXC/LXD) on the Pi would have the following advantages:
Easily share your project with others (they docker pull your container image and voilà they can run your project on their Pi);
Corollary to the previous point: easy installation or ...
On my Raspbian Jessie installation, the Kernel (4.4.27) is compiled with CONFIG_SECCOMP but not the filter option (CONFIG_SECCOMP_FILTER and CONFIG_HAVE_ARCH_SECCOMP_FILTER). So you will not be able to activate seccomp profiles on LXC (or Docker). See issue: https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/1172
In addition, there are no user namespace support ...
I am facing the same issue, the Wi-Fi gets disconnected after starting one docker container.
The issue has been temporarily resolved by disabling the static IP.
Check the file - /etc/dhcpcd.conf, make sure all the static IP mapped with wlan0/SSIDs are commented out.
Reboot the Raspberry Pi.
Start the container.
Hope it works for you too.
I've had the same problem today while pulling resin/rpi-raspbian. Worked in Ubuntu VM, but not on the Pi. I've also used a Pyhton image a week ago. Now I could not pull it anymore. Docker was installed with apt.
(sudo apt install docker.io)
I just managed to solve it by removing docker and installing it via a script I found online.
sudo apt ...
Use debian:buster as your base container instead of python:3.5-buster
Put this into your Dockerfile:
ENV PYTHONPATH /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages
Similarly, put this at the top of a.py:
It's unclear why Python's package path system is so fragile, but ...
For reference, and to supplement @tifong01 and @Lenne's great responses:
The implementation of the Docker Manifest V2 Schema 2 API used by the Docker CLI does not currently differentiate properly between armv6 and armv7 architectures at runtime (related Github issues: here in moby core and here in the official-images repo, where images like alpine live). ...
I have not tried any of this myself, but this is how I would do it. Make sure to have backups and be ready to roll back if something goes wrong.
First, add the Debian repo to your sources.list:
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster main
deb-src http://deb.debian.org/debian buster main
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian-security/ buster/updates main
The default route needs a Gateway where to send packages with a destination the kernel does not know. The Gateway must be a host (router) on the same network the RasPi is direct connected to with an interface. According to your routing table the RasPi is connected to two subnets:
10.0.0.0/24 with addresses from 10.0.0.1 to 10.0.0.254 on interface ...
First of all it`s correct, that you cannot granting GPIO access from inside of the docker Container as i know so far.
A Possible Workaround is to adding Parameters to the Dockerfile and to your application:
Your Dockerfile should have an Entrypoint in the End like:
After this you should able to start a Docker ...
My Problem is fixed. Reason was GCC Compiler plus Alpine in addition.
I turned my back to alpine and switched to
as Base Image. Alpine missed a lib3 directory (Probably a System Library) which was the reason why Docker exits with a error Code 190 no such file or directory
Here is my new Dockerfile:
FROM golang:1.10.3 as builder
Not many OS distros package docker for the CPU architecture of the RaspberryPi - armhf. Your error indicates that CentOS doesn't have a docker package for you.
You will need to install it like this:
curl -sSL https://get.docker.com | sh
This is further explained in this raspberrypi.org article:
I've been looking at doing something similar, but I've not actually gotten around to trying it... and so you have a chance to be a true pioneer here :) In addition, this is not the only solution, or even the best one, but it's the one I'm going to try. Note that the steps to install the dependencies and get the actual code are embedded in this post from Nov, ...
For a newer version of R, try using the backports CRAN archive for Debian Stretch:
# set up CRAN package repository for R 3.5 backports to Debian stretch
echo 'deb [arch=armhf] http://cran.rstudio.com/bin/linux/debian stretch-cran35/' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cran35.list
# import package repository key
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-...
What does 'myapp' do ?
Are you sure it does listen on port 8181 of the container's external interface (or on all interfaces) ?
Are you sure 'myapp' starts correctly ?
$ docker logs <container id>
give you any error or debug message ?
If your images contains netstat, the output of
$ docker exec <container id> netstat -lnp
would show ...
