Freifunk Magdeburg Docker build image
Docker image to build firmware for the Freifunk Magdeburg community.
The build process is started automatically when the container is run. There is no need to manually run commands inside the container anymore.
This section shows the commands that are needed to run a build with the Docker image. Make sure you know what you are doing before hitting the Enter key.
Clone the repository:
git clone https://github.com/FreifunkMD/gluon-docker cd gluon-docker/
Use the following commands on the host to create and run the docker image:
docker build -t ffmd-v2016.2.7 . docker run -it --name ffmd ffmd-v2016.2.7
The container will automatically start the firmware build process.
The build process can be configured with build arguments:
docker build --build-arg FFMD_VERSION=tags/v0.38-beta.1 -t ffmd-v2016.2.7 .
To start the container with an arbitrary command, you can:
docker run -it --name ffmd ffmd-v2016.2.7 "/bin/bash"
You can run a shell in an existing container with the following command:
docker exec -it ffmd /bin/bash
To restart the image once it has been stopped:
docker start -i ffmd
Once you are done, container and image can be deleted by calling
docker rm ffmd docker rmi ffmd-v2017.2.7
The build needs up to 60 GB of hard disk space. If the docker environment cannot provide the neccessary space, the paths
/gluon/openwrt/build_dir should be bound to a different directory:
docker run -it --name ffmd \ -v "$(pwd)/firmwares:/gluon/output" \ -v "$(pwd)/openwrt_build:/gluon/openwrt/build_dir" \ ffmd-v2016.2.7
This will create and bind the directories
openwrt_build in the current working directory to the container's output directories.
