How can I help test Docker for RPi? #17
The last official Docker binaries for Raspberry Pi (Raspbian) were released in May at version 17.05. 17.05 is fully working including Docker Swarm and is available via
Support was going to be dropped for Raspbian (and ARMv6) from 17.05 onwards, but fortunately the decision was re-considered.
We need to test Docker 17.07 RC on Raspbian Jessie and Stretch on the ARMv6 (Pi Zero/B/B+) and ARMv7 (RPi 2/3) platforms. Unfortunately this may mean building from source which can take some time and can be tricky on a small device.
Please setup an environment with instructions in #16
Then pick one or all of the following issues:
With rebranding to Docker CE, a new repository was introduced with a new docker-ce package (instead of docker-engine). Docker CE 17.06 works fine on Raspbian using the official instructions for Debian: https://docs.docker.com/engine/installation/linux/docker-ce/debian/#install-using-the-repository
I have successfully tested these on Raspberry Pi 3 - some details below.
Device : Raspberry Pi 3
High Level Instructions
Checkout all necessary code and build
Swap pre-installed docker version for built version
Lets test docker itself first
Test docker swarm with faas from alexellis
Start a docker swarm (single node is fine)
Lets get alexisellis's faas code (to test docker swarm)
Find your ip address
Then open up browser and hit http://:8080 to see the faas menu.
