diskimage-builder is a tool for automatically building customized operating-system images for use in clouds and other environments.
Unfortunately, I can’t do everything in Docker so I have to use VMs a lot. diskimage-builder helps me a lot to build basic VM images with pre-installed packages, my SSH key, etc.
Since I try to have my development environment as clean, as possible I do not install additional packages on my desktop. Any Python package I install in the virtualenv. For system-level packages (deb/rpm) I try to use Docker and Virtual Machines.
That’s why I created Dockerfile
for diskimage-builder. There is a sample file to build and run this container.
Do not forget to run container in
--privileged mode because it’s required to
get chroot working.
Here is my GitHub repository with Dockerfile: https://github.com/e0ne/diskimage-builder-docker
P.S. I’ll add this to the Docker Hub soon.
