centos image

This "docker" image is based on the "Docker" CentOS base image.

Differences between "feduxorg/centos" and "library/centos"

  • Uses "systemd" as PID 1 by default
  • Has the network service "disabled" - this really only prevents an error,
    but does not disable network functionality
  • The fast mirror plugin is diabled to reduce round-trips before download
    packages via HTTP proxies
  • Enabled priorities for CentOS repositories
  • Limited journal size in container since an "outer" journald does not touch
    journals from other inner journalds.
  • Added scripts to enable "EPEL" or "RPMFORGE"
  • Added "gosu" as sudo/su replacement
  • Enabled and running "dbus"-service
  • Set TERM-environment variable to xterm
  • Script Runner for simple initializer shell scripts
  • Additional packages
    • vim
    • tar
    • dhclient
    • curl
    • net-tools
    • telnet
    • bind-utils
    • strace
    • lsof
  • Addiontional volumes
    • /sys/fs/cgroup
    • /run
    • /tmp
  • Default command is "/usr/sbin/init" aka "systemd"
  • Workdir is "/"



To run a image please use this command:

docker run -ti -v /sys/fs/cgroup:/sys/fs/cgroup:ro -v /var/log/journal:/var/log/journal feduxorg/centos

Mount scripts

If a directory is mounted to /var/lib/scripts, the script-runner.service
starts /usr/local/bin/ This script runs all executable files
in /var/lib/scripts.

docker run -it --rm --name centos1 -v /sys/fs/cgroup:/sys/fs/cgroup -v $(pwd)/tmp:/var/lib/scripts feduxorg/centos
