[SOLVED] Install Docker.

Hello, I installed Devuan Chimaera yesterday but I was unable to install docker.
From here
But it didn’t work out for me. How can I install Docker or its analogues on this system. Thank you.

Re: [SOLVED] Install Docker.

Not sure why this thread is marked [SOLVED] without an actual solution but Docker is available from the chimaera repositories:

# apt install

If the daemon doesn't autostart at boot use

# update-rc.d docker defaults

Re: [SOLVED] Install Docker.

Welcome to the forum . . .

Unofficial docker images for all Devuan releases including Devuan 4 Chimaera are available here. They are prepared and supported by paddy-hack and jaromil.

Re: [SOLVED] Install Docker.

Thank you, everything worked out for me. It's just not usual without sistemd.

sudo docker run hello-world

Hello from Docker!
This message shows that your installation appears to be working correctly.

To generate this message, Docker took the following steps:
1. The Docker client contacted the Docker daemon.
2. The Docker daemon pulled the "hello-world" image from the Docker Hub.
3. The Docker daemon created a new container from that image which runs the
    executable that produces the output you are currently reading.
4. The Docker daemon streamed that output to the Docker client, which sent it
    to your terminal.

To try something more ambitious, you can run an Ubuntu container with:
$ docker run -it ubuntu bash
