Docker - moby - 404 = confusion

Greetings, I have installed Fedora Server 32 with Cockpit and looking forward to a wonderful experience using it as a host for several docker based applications.

However I cant install Docker. I get some references to Moby which seems old, the Docker project instructions for Fedora do not work.

sudo dnf install docker

Hi,

Doesn’t look live they’ve setup a repo for for fedora 32 yet:

https://download.docker.com/linux/fedora/

I suggest contacting docker for and ETA.

Thanks Tom.

Got that, only hope Moby will follow the Docker releases… Akihiro say its only removed the brand name, but I really don’t get why, Docker is free…

I suggest all of you to use Podman instead (https://podman.io)

I’ve been quite happy using Podman and Buildah, but I’ve not been able to use them exclusively. For example:

I don’t see the point. Well, yes, a graphical interface to handle your docker images, but surely the Docker guys has that somewhere? I tried Podman for like 30 minutes and it was just adding to the confusion.

I went with Fedora Server > Docker > Apps for a reason, and that is to reduce the number of layers.

You can go:
Host > VM > Docker > Webapps but with this solution I have Host > Docker > Webapps

Now, I realize Podman isn’t a layer as such, but getting used to Docker and finding a solution made by Docker for Docker seems a more reasonable approach. If they have one, which I don’t know at this time.

hum, there are a few, and probably more: https://medium.com/@karthi.net/top-6-gui-tools-for-managing-docker-environments-ee2d69ba5a4f

ehm, scrap that, seems only https://www.portainer.io/ is up to date and active of those listed in the article.

Well, Cockpit can let you manager your Podman containers using a web interface just like Portainer does with Docker ones. You just must install the “podman-container” package (it’s like a “plugin” for Podman) and that’s all.
