Void is a general purpose linux distribution, meant to be used by advanced users. Its package system allows you to quickly install, update and remove software; software is provided in binary packages or can be built directly from sources with the help of the XBPS source packages collection.
The spirit of Void is such that we keep things default, necessary, and minimal as possible (while trying not to leave features out).
To regenerate this image, make sure you have the latest version of xbps installed and execute the following as root. Replace
<REPOSITORY NAME> by the repository name you want to use.
mkdir docker-void xbps-install -y -r $PWD/docker-void --repository=http://repo.voidlinux.eu/current -S base-voidstrap tar -pC docker-void -c . | docker import - <REPOSITORY NAME> rm -rf docker-void
What's the preferred way to launch the docker instance in order to have a look around?
Calling the image with "/bin/bash" works, but does not launch runit.
