Are there any plans to include Docker in the default distribution once Docker reaches v1.0?

I have produced a kernel with LXC and AUFS included and ported Docker v0.11 to the RPi (see if you are interested.

It's (very) unlikely that it will be included in the default release, assuming that's still based on Wheezy. (Raspbian Wheezy follows Debian Wheezy)
But in Jessie, there's already a package (version 0.11.1).
You could try installing that package from Jessie, while still staying on Wheezy (for the rest) or fully upgrade to Jessie.

Whether version 1.x of reaches Jessie depends on Docker's release plans as (AFAIK) the freeze for Jessie is scheduled for November (and version 1.x must be in by then otherwise it won't make it into Jessie)

EDIT: And I just got notice through /. that 1.0 is released, so it's quite likely it will be part of Jessie.
Don't know when 1.0 will be available in the archives though.

FWIW: indeed shows docker (aka is included in jessie for the following CPU architectures:
But, AFAIK, raspbian jessie is NOT using one-on-ne the debian jessie repository, which means is NOT automatically in raspbian jessie.

However, I also have got a Cubox (with ARMv7), which does use plain debian, so maybe I'll upgrade my Cubox from wheezy to jessie to check if is installable and usable...


I upgraded my ARMv7 Cubox to jessie, and docker is installable and usable! :D

Hi seahope,

there is also a really easy way to get up and running with Docker on Rasbian in no time.
We just released a new version of our Get-Docker-Up-And-Running-On-Your-Pi-In-No-Time SD card image.
It is based on Raspbian and includes a 3.18.8 kernel and the latest Docker 1.5.0 version.

You can find our image and information about how to use it here: ... -1-dot-5-0


Return to “Raspbian”
