Debian 7.8.0 (wheezy) sparc64 qemu image
Github repository: https://github.com/danisla/dockerfiles/tree/master/debian-sparc64
Built with qemu 2.3.0 from debian:stretch base image.
The base image was built using this guide:
Creating the base image took about 5 hours, emulated IO is very slow. To save time, the clean install filesystem image is included in this docker image. The total docker image size is about 1.9G.
The prepared image file is not included in the git repository but it can be copied out of the docker image or downloaded here.
docker run -p 2023:2023 danisla/debian-sparc64:latest
This starts qemu but waits for a telnet connection to boot the kernel
telnet dockerhost 2023
All output and console interactions are done via telnet.
The image will take about 5 minutes to start.
user/pass: debian/debian root pass: debian
The default entrypoint for the container creates a snapshot of the base qcow2 image. All files within the guest Debian image that are changed while the container is running are written to this snapshot.
The qemu default network backend creates the SLIRP network on 10.0.2.15, this happens to also be the boot2docker ip range, to avoid conflicts, the entrypoint script starts qemu with the argument below to create a new network:
Note that port 22 is also forwarded for SSH access into the instance.
