Originally, I had created this image as a base image for starting a "local" kubernetes installation on ubuntu, following the instructions on HTTP://kubernetes.io/v1.0/docs/getting-started-guides/locally.html. The prerequisites are: Linux, docker, etcd and go. In addition, I have installed git, gcc, curl and wget. However, I did not yet succeed in installing and running kubernetes on this image. Instead, I have installed an ubuntu VM using Vagrant. There, it worked.
