scripts and Dockerfiles to build jmtd/debian* docker images
What I use to build
jmtd/debian:* docker images on the Docker registry.
Description of images
build: This is a sid/unstable base image, variant buildd: this includes
build-essentialand their dependencies. It's suitable as a base image for building a Debian package, or the basis of a buildd.
stretch: a base debian installation of stretch (current stable). Approx. 220M in size.
jessie: a base debian installation of jessie (oldstable). Approx. 218M in size.
wheezy-i386: a base debian installation of the i386-architecture version of wheezy (oldoldstable). This could be used for anything requiring a 32-bit toolchain. Approx 166M in size.
To build your own images run
sudo apt-get install git make debootstrap git clone https://github.com/jmtd/debian-docker.git cd debian-docker/ sudo make release=stretch prefix=jmtd arch=amd64 mirror=http://httpredir.debian.org/debian/
All the arguments above are optional. The values in the example above are
the defaults. The resulting image would be tagged
I don't want to maintain a zillion different images, but there are a few other variants that might be of use for people:
- possibly move the
debootstrapstep to execute within a container, so you don't need it on your host system
- Update the i386 variant image to stable
- Perhaps introduce floating release tags, e.g.
winebase image, derived from (probably)
- Possibly a base X image, with x11vnc, uxterm and a lightweight window
manager. Last I checked
openboxwas a bit smaller than
- minimised images. As per Joey H's blog, The Debian images here are
base Debian images, to avoid being misleading, but that makes them much
larger than Docker's "semi-official" Debian images (twice as large). We
could/should offer minimized images, starting with
--variant=minbasebut also incorporating other things, such as some of the techniques used by emdebian. Just so long as we clearly label them as being modified from stock Debian.
what does docker.io run -it debian sh
run? by Joey Hess, which
only trust docker images you build yourself.
