A simple, ultra-minimal Arch Linux base image for Docker.
- Occupies ~170mb on disk.
- Consumes ~5mb running
/bin/bashon a fresh container.
- Honest, public build/deploy logs.
- Simple, unopinionated package selection, a subset of
- Agnostic to versions, easily and quickly updated.
Out of date? Broken? Open an issue or email me (email on Github user page). In a rush? Build it yourself, see below.
You can try out this base image as an interactive container. From here you can play around as
root and do whatever.
docker run --tty --interactive --rm hoverbear/archlinux /bin/bash
You can also use this image from a
Dockerfile, you'll likely want to refer to the reference.
FROM hoverbear/archlinux:latest MAINTAINER Andrew Hobden <firstname.lastname@example.org> # Do whatever... # You'll probably change this. ENTRYPOINT /bin/bash
- 64-bit Linux 2.6.23 or higher.
You can build the image, and give it a dry run.
This will spawn one of the official Ubuntu images and build the container in there. After it will import the created image into your
docker and attempt to spawn it.
Note that things are deliberately as simple as possible. If you're making a contribution please endeavor to leave things more understandable and straightforward than you found it. This code is meant to be trustyworthy and auditable.
