slackware-container

build scripts for a slackware container image

Overview

The Dockerfile is incomplete so far, since it expects a base image to be used. It would be possible and understandable to use the ‘busybox’ image, and build from there, but also to have a mkimage-slackware.sh to build the base image.

build

Currently, using the installer bootstrap, the mkimage-slackware can create an ultra-minimal slackware filesystem. (does not even include pkgtools)

If you have podman installed (the is an SBo build):

$> CRT="sudo podman" make image

Then you will be able to run:

$> sudo podman run -i -t $USER/slackware-base /bin/sh

(this also can be built and run with docker as well. If you build with one, you’ll have to push your container build to a container registry before you can pull and run with the other)

(This will be the environment to build out the Dockerfile from) (( see http://docs.docker.com/reference/builder/ for more info on that ))

To build alternate versions of slackware, pass gnu-make the RELEASE variable, like:

$> make image RELEASE=slackware64-13.37 IMG_NAME=$HOME/my_slackware:13.37

Index

This is this build process used to be the base of ‘vbatts/slackware’ on the http://index.docker.io/

Just running:

$> sudo podman run -i -t vbatts/slackware /bin/sh

or

$> sudo docker run -i -t vbatts/slackware /bin/sh

Will pull down this image for testing.
