L4fame Build Container

This repository contains a bash script and Dockerfile that will pull and build the Fabric Attached Memory packages necessary for running code on The Machine.

Known Working Environments

This build container has been tested and verified working on the following operating systems :

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.3
  • Ubuntu 17.04
  • Fedora 26
  • Debian Jessie

Getting Started

This repository can be cloned and built, or a complete image can be downloaded off Dockerhub.

Clone & Build

Clone and build the repository with:

git clone
cd l4fame-build-container && docker build -t l4fame-build-container .

Pull from Dockerhub

Pull the prebuilt image from Dockerhub.

docker pull austinhpe/l4fame-build-container

Launching the Docker Image

Once the Docker image has been built or downloaded it needs to be run with:

(depending on the method used to acquire the Docker image)

docker run -t --name l4fame-builder --privileged -v BUILD:/build -v ~/deb:/deb l4fame-build-container

docker run -t --name l4fame-builder --privileged -v BUILD:/build -v ~/deb:/deb austinhpe/l4fame-build-container

To disconnect from the container without killing it run Ctrl+C

To reconnect to the container run docker attach l4fame-builder

Docker Flag Explanation
-t Allocates and attaches a pseudo-tty, this allows us to background the container without killing it.
--name l4fame-builder Names the container "l4fame-builder" to simplify subsequent runs.
--privileged Gives the container enough privileges to enter a chroot and build arm64 packages.
-v BUILD:/build Creates a new Docker volume named BUILD to hold packages and temporary files as they are being built.
-v ~/deb:/deb Mounts a folder to store the finished packages.
-e cores=number_of_cores Optional Flag Sets the number of cores used to compile packages. Replace number_of_cores with an integer value. If this flag is left off the container will automatically use half the available cpu cores capped at 8.
-e http_proxy=http://ProxyAddress:PORT
-e https_proxy=https://ProxyAddress:PORT
Optional Flag Sets the containers http_proxy and https_proxy variables. This flag needs to be set when this container is running on a machine that requires a proxy to reach the internet.

End Results

On completion ~/deb should contain all the packages necessary for running code on The Machine.
