Greetings, I tried to install docker for production, unfortunately I didn’t find “rocky linux”, shall I go with CentOS version or Rhel? Thanks in advance
In Redhat base I think you can use podman, it is already installed in Rocky Linux
Hi, Thank you for taking a time to answer my question. After couple of research, I tried installing centos version and so far it works as it supposed to be. Stay safe & stay health.
podman search rocky podman pull docker.io/rockylinux/rockylinux
Thank you for giving a suggestion for me, I have never heard about podman, can’t wait to try it
You can just
dnf install podman-docker and then using ‘docker command’ instead of ‘podman’ :
Red Hat did describe podman when it did release RHEL 8.
IMHO, Docker is a nightmare. It needs daemon. It needs elevated privileges, which is a security issue.
Podman (and singularity) do not run as daemon. They can be run as regular user.
I don’t know how to express my gratitude for your kindness. To be fair, I haven’t deeply read podman documentation
https://docs.podman.io/en/latest/Introduction.html. But I notice, they said
instead of using
So, as far as I understand, podman is just the “better” version of docker with the same application?
The “better” is always subjective. Podman is compatible; it can use Docker image format, and thus existing Docker repositories and images.
The singularity is different. It has tools to generate singularity images from Docker images (if you are root), but not use Docker images directly.
