Funtoo is now uploading Dockerized stages to our Docker Hub account. Here's how to use them.
Setting up Docker
To set up docker on Funtoo Linux you will need to emerge
app-emulation/docker, start up the docker startup script and ensure that your user is in the
Of course, you can use Funtoo docker images on any system that supports Docker -- it doesn't need to be Funtoo. If you're not using Funtoo, just ensure Docker is up and running then continue below.
Grabbing the image
To grab an image, pick the image you want and pull it:
user $ docker pull funtoo/stage3-intel64-skylake
Launching an Image
Since Funtoo docker images are set up to run OpenRC by default, you can simply start them in the background and will continue to run. Run an image in the background with the
user $ docker run -d funtoo/stage3-intel64-skylake
Entering an Image
To enter a bash shell inside the image, use
docker ps to grab the
CONTAINER ID and then specify it with the following
docker exec command:
user $ docker exec -it ba1f3755fa03 /bin/bash root #
Now that you are in the container, you should run an initial
ego sync and perform any other tasks you want. You may want to create a user and set up your container so you can ssh into it directly:
root # ego sync
Exit the container shell as you normally would exit a shell, and you will be out of the container and back on your host.
