Moving Docker from Wheezy to JessieMon, Jul 27, 2015
What’s even better then Wheezy? Yes, your right - that’s Jessie.
And that’s not only because we very much like what crazy stuff Jessie is doing with Docker. No, it’s because Jessie is the next version of the Debian operating system that forms the foundation of our SD card image.
Jessie updates all the included software to much more recent versions. And most notably it switches the old sys-v-init startup system to systemd.
Battle-Tested Docker-Jessie with some sugar
On top of that we added all the battle-tested ingredients of our previous Get-Docker-Running-in-under-5-Minutes SD card image:
- a kernel optimised for Docker-awesomeness: Kernel 3.18.11 with support for OverlayFS
- the most recent Docker 1.7.1
- support for Pi 1 & 2 with the same image
- support for network hotplugging
- out of the box support for Wifi
- support for Avahi (aka Apple Bonjour)
- support for Open vSwitch
We consider this new version of our SD card image still as beta quality. During the next two weeks we want to improve it step by step and gather feedback to make it a great out-of-the-box experience for our users.
