Advisory: This site contains documentation for the v1.12 release candidate version of Docker Engine. For the Docker Engine v1.11 docs, see https://docs.docker.com/v1.11/. Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows are currently in Beta.

FrugalWare

Installing on FrugalWare is handled via the official packages:

The lxc-docker package will install the latest tagged version of Docker.

Dependencies

Docker depends on several packages which are specified as dependencies in the packages. The core dependencies are:

  • systemd
  • lvm2
  • sqlite3
  • libguestfs
  • lxc
  • iproute2
  • bridge-utils

Installation

A simple

$ sudo pacman -S lxc-docker

is all that is needed.

Starting Docker

There is a systemd service unit created for Docker. To start Docker as service:

$ sudo systemctl start lxc-docker

To start on system boot:

$ sudo systemctl enable lxc-docker

Custom daemon options

If you need to add an HTTP Proxy, set a different directory or partition for the Docker runtime files, or make other customizations, read our systemd article to learn how to customize your systemd Docker daemon options.

Uninstallation

To uninstall the Docker package:

$ sudo pacman -R lxc-docker

To uninstall the Docker package and dependencies that are no longer needed:

$ sudo pacman -Rns lxc-docker

The above commands will not remove images, containers, volumes, or user created configuration files on your host. If you wish to delete all images, containers, and volumes run the following command:

$ rm -rf /var/lib/docker

You must delete the user created configuration files manually.
