Full Description

Supported tags and respective Dockerfile links

For more information about this image and its history, please see the relevant manifest file (library/fedora). This image is updated via pull requests to the docker-library/official-images GitHub repo.

For detailed information about the virtual/transfer sizes and individual layers of each of the above supported tags, please see the fedora/tag-details.md file in the docker-library/docs GitHub repo.

Fedora

This image serves as the official Fedora image for Fedora 22, Fedora 21 and as a semi-official image for Fedora 20 (heisenbug) and rawhide.

The fedora:latest tag will always point to the latest stable release, currently Fedora 22. fedora:latest is now the same as fedora:22.

Fedora rawhide is available via fedora:rawhide and Fedora 20 via fedora:20 and fedora:heisenbug. Fedora 20 has now reached EOL and will receive no updates after the fix for CVE-2015-4000 (Logjam).

The metalink http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org is used to automatically select a mirror site (both for building the image as well as for the yum repos in the container image).

$ docker run fedora cat /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo | grep metalink
metalink=https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=fedora-$releasever&arch=$basearch
metalink=https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=fedora-debug-$releasever&arch=$basearch
metalink=https://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/metalink?repo=fedora-source-$releasever&arch=$basearch

Supported Docker versions

This image is officially supported on Docker version 1.10.0.

Support for older versions (down to 1.6) is provided on a best-effort basis.

Please see the Docker installation documentation for details on how to upgrade your Docker daemon.

Hey,

The long description is not completely updated to indicate the current version, Fedora 23 (Jan/2016).

toxmc, I do not think you can run systemd inside container, container runs only one process not a whole process manager. I know there was some effort and it worked with patched systemd, but it is not how it works now.

Where is located this 'best practices' page?

These images are out of date, and running "yum upgrade" is discouraged in the best practices page, they should be updated.
